Advertise On Our Town Sites

Sunday 06/09/2015 11:43:36 | View This Entry

Are you interested in advertising your business to a local audience at a low cost them why not take out an advert on one of our 'Our Town' sites.

The cost is £3 per month for Alfreton, Ripley, Heanor, Belper or Langley Mill and £1.50 per month for Codnor, Heage, Crich, Ambergate, Loscoe, Riddings, South Normanton, Somercotes, Swanwick, Kedleston, Pentrich, Denby, Kilburn, Duffield & Kedleston.

This is based on 2000 visits per month for the town sites and 1000 visits per month for the village sites, if we don't hit these targets then we leave your advert on for an extra month (or two) until your adverts have had the minimum number of visits.

There is a minimum spend of £10 and you will need to produce your own advert (although we may be able to help adapt one of your exisitng adverts)

A Great Dog Shampoo From AV Company Hearts & Homespun

Friday 25/04/2014 10:51:12 | View This Entry

A long standing problem has been to find a dog shampoo that doesn’t irritate our dogs skin but cleans him thoroughly. We never managed to fully get over this problem with our old dog, but since having our new puppy I have been determined to beat this issue, so the hunt began in earnest. Sometimes things just happen to fall into your lap as if by magic, and so it happened on this occasion..... I saw a Facebook post from Hearts and Homespun ( a local company I had used a few times before and always been impressed by) for their “Dirty Dog“ dog shampoo, and thought it was worth a try. It is Aloe Vera based, so cleanses gently without stripping the coat and irritating the dogs skin, and also contains no Parabens or SLS (an artificial foaming agent). Apparently the coconut oil has a gentle natural foaming action of its own.

Something New From Ripley Based Exotic Meats

Monday 10/03/2014 21:14:27 | View This Entry

Here at Amber Valley Info we are quite familiar with Ripley based Exotic Meats, not only have they been the main attraction at one of the #AVYourSay Twitter networking events but last summer we purchased a couple of their BBQ packs with a range of sausages and burgers including Crocodile, Kangaroo, Goat, Horse, Reindeer, Llama and Wild Boar to name but a few.

So when Paul Webb of Exotic Meats mentioned they had a new product, Lambs Testicles, we volunteered to give them a try.

Changes To Car Parking At Home Bargains In Alfreton

Tuesday 04/02/2014 18:55:22 | View This Entry

A lot of rumours were appearing on social media that parking on the car park above Home Bargains in Alfreton had been cut to one hour (from two hours) free parking.

We get in touch with Home Bargains to clarify the situation and they told us;

The car park is controlled and always has been by another company who have recently installed new signage. They made a mistake with the new signage it should read 2 hours free parking. The signage is being changed.

They didn't say when the signage was being changed nor did they say if the company are going to honour the two hours parking before the signs are changed so we would suggest not staying longer than an hour until the signs are changed back.

Just remember if you do get a fine notice from a private company, it's not a fine, it's a charge and they don't have the same enforcement powers as councils so do so check out this great article about how to fight it (We used the militant approach against one in Chesterfield recently and got the charge waived)

Comedy Night At Bluey's A Great Success

Friday 31/01/2014 06:56:04 | View This Entry

I’m not normally one to be behind the times, but on this occasion I have to confess to missing the boat slightly. Bluey’s held their third “ Flamin’ Galah “ Comedy night last night ( 28th January), and if it was anything to go by, I have missed out on 2 side-splittingly funny nights out. Anyhow, at least I can say I made it along to this one.
