LymeOnline is an independent, not-for-profit community venture. We want to continue providing the comprehensive news coverage that the Lyme Regis, Uplyme and Charmouth area deserves, but to do this we need your support to help cover printing, distribution and staff costs.


LymeOnline offers advertising opportunities to suit all budgets at the most competitive prices in the local area. Advertising opportunities are available on both our website, which attracts an average of 8,000 users a week, and in our fortnightly printed edition, which has a distribution of about 4,000.

All advertisers in our printed newspaper will also receive a free advert on our website, to ensure you reach the biggest audience possible – so if you have a new business, special offer, event, announcement or job vacancy, please consider us.
