Chester Handbooks – Delivering your message! – Delivering your message in Chester!

About Chester Handbooks

Back in 2005, the Layder family launched a local community based handbook, the first issue, ‘Huntington Handbook’ which was published in April 2005 and was delivered to 1,400 residents by David personally.

Fast forward 15 years to 2020, and we are proud to have 6 local handbooks with 26,000 copies dropping through letterboxes in and around Chester each and every month.

Delivery remains one of our most important priorities, and many of our local and accountable deliverers have been with us from the start. There isn’t much we don’t know about advertising and marketing, and between us we have nigh on 40 years experience of working with companies and traders, large and small, with a genuine interest in the individual journey to develop and sustain your place in the particular business sector – as we have.

With the continued support of the community, readers and advertisers Chester Handbooks has grown from strength to strength to become the largest independent publisher in the Chester area yet maintaining a friendly and personal service.

Regular Facebook and Twitter posts, reader competitions, home improvement tips, local news, community activities and groups, monthly gardening feature, police updates, lifestyle and fitness tips, financial advice, recipes, monthly car review and much more….

No gimmicks, just straight forward honest and reliable advice. Continue to grow YOUR business with the Chester Handbooks Team – if it works for 400 advertisers each month it can work for you!
