Our Story

Bringing buyers and sellers together since 1975.

The notion of creating a marketplace was where it all started for the Friday Media Group. Our Founder, Chris Kidger, wanted to sell his car in the 70s and quickly realised there wasn’t an easy way to advertise it to local people who may want to buy. Chris and his wife subsequently launched a weekly printed sheet entitled Friday-Ad, and hand-delivered them around the Uckfield area.

Truly at the heart of what we do as a group to this very day is much the same now as it was  45 years ago – connecting people, easily, to the very thing they are looking for. There’s no better place for your business to reach a considerable and highly targeted audience of potential customers.

From the Community, for the community!

Cotterill Associates

 

“We have marketed our business through Friday-Ad; on both the cover, section and supplements for the past 9 years which always brings us fantastic results. I would highly recommend Friday-Ad as your local marketing solution.”

Sussex Care Centres Ltd

The Shed Factory

“I advertised my services on the front page of the local Friday-Ad and within hours I was receiving calls! One of the callers said they don’t usually pick the Friday-Ad up but saw my advert on it and made a note of my number.”

Vintage Tools

“We have been advertising with the Friday-Ad for several years now, and have always had a good response and a courteous and efficient service from Julie Willson, who has helped us with the preparation and creative artwork/photography for our numerous ads. Friday-Ad has been about more than just taking advert space it has also been about advising us with achieving our business targets in a professional manner and we have ultimately become a part of the Friday-Ad family.”

Stringtown Supplies

“I put my first advert in 1984 in George Street Hove, which was then my local shop. I did this due to a customer telling me it was difficult to get hold of a stone company. From then on I built my business on the Friday-Ad, and Brighton Stone flourished very quickly. I continue to use the Paper and my local rep is very efficient and helpful.”

Brighton Stone

“We have always used the Friday-Ad for our various promotions throughout the years. We always get good value for money and receive positive feedback from our customers, both old and new. Our Seaford rep is always very conscientious in ensuring our advert copy is to our specific requirements. Our Christmas advert was absolutely superb.”

After a couple of hours, I started to receive a large amount of phone calls in relation to my Caravans for sale On Camber Sands Holiday Park!!
