Local Business Listings

Please complete and submit the form below to get your listing

Please note: Our web page listing local businesses lists businesses of all types - shops, pubs, restaurants, cafés, take-aways, tradesmen, professional and other services, but NOT holiday accommodation - there are already pages on the website for self-catering and serviced holiday accommodation (if you have a holiday accommodation business but don't already advertise on please contact us for details - click here for mail form). The new Local Biz page is already on the website - click here to see it .

Businesses listed must be located/based in Polperro or within 3 miles of the village.

Limited offer!: For applications received from 1 October 2011 to 31 December 2011 the cost of a listing will be £25 + VAT for the first 12 months (the price for new applicants after 31 December 2011 will be £60 + VAT).

Each individual listing will be based around a photo (size 240 pixels wide x 180 pixels high). Send us a suitable photo at this or a higher resolution. In the case of shops, restaurants, pubs etc the photo could be of the shopfront, shop window, an interior view, or a photo of the product being sold. It would be nice to have some photos showing the shop owner, chef or whoever, in or in front of the shop, restaurant etc. As an alternative to a photo the same space could feature your business logo if you have one.

As an extra, your listing can include a large photo which can be clicked out from the small one in the listing - this extra facility will cost an additional £30 + VAT (one time charge - no extra cost in following years). If you would like a click-out large photo please say so when you complete the form below and be sure to send us a photo of at least 1200 pixels wide.

There will be room in the listing for very brief details of the business + contact information (telephone number, email address and website address (if you have your own website). The registration form (below) allows for up to 140 characters of text but we may have to shorten or edit the text to fit the listing.

We may introduce a homepage promo for the Local Businesses page to help ensure that visitors to the website are aware of the page and to encourage them to take the link - if you would like your business to be one of those featured in this homepage promo (which will probably take the form of a rolling slide show), please indicate accordingly on the form below. There will be an extra charge for this (£50 + VAT for 12 months) which will be invoiced to you when the homepage promo is launched.

We reserve the right to decline to include a listing if we feel it does not fit the above criteria or would otherwise be inappropriate.
