About Us

The Colston Media Group thrives within its distribution areas. We have Three publications with coverage throughout Scotland, Yorkshire and the Northwest of England. Because we have such a wide reach and strong circulation figure, by choosing to advertise within any of our publications you are ensuring that your business is seen not only within the area that you work within, but also; by impressive numbers of people interested in the products and services that you offer.

Currently all our publications are very successful digital magazines, all of which are distributed fortnightly. They are sent out via email or can be accessed via Twitter, Facebook, Pagesuite and our popular websites and

We are also very excited to be one of the very first local publications to offer their complete publication on-line completely free of charge. Our specialist Digital Reading Software that is literally leading the industry allows our readers to view the publication on-line at their convenience. This has meant that our readers have been able to print off adverts and give them to friends, or have them at hand for when they wish to approach the product/service provider featured.

Originally our magazines were hard copy, however we made the switch to digital as its environmentally friendly, it’s much faster to access and can be accessed on phones, tablets, laptops and many other formats. This has allowed us to hit a much larger readership for our advertisers.

Customer Testimonials

Mackenzie Property

Colston Media did a great job. I was delighted with my Ad.

Pain Relief Foundation

Oh, wow that looks fabulous, pass on my thanks to the team.

Storthes Hall Park

Good service, great offers simple process and easy to work with!

Durham County Council

I have dealt with Shane Stevens over recent months regarding the placing of adverts in publications. He has consistently been very polite, helpful and efficient in dealing with my requirements and his standard of service encourages me to continue to place adverts with the Group in future.

APH Advanced Plumbing and Heating

As a customer, I have found you to be enthusiastic about generatin business, reliable and responsive. Also, you maintained your professionalism when faced with an abrupt response from one of my colleagues, all traits which, in my view, are invaluable for your role.

The Thornbury Centre

I always find you very easy to deal with and you appear to be a very good sales person without being pushy! I say this because you have persuaded me to change my mind on a number of occasions (when I have been determined not to take out an ad!) as I don’t think that the Yorkshire Herald particularly targets our niche market. I am also impressed with the way that you follow up and respond to any queries that I have raised (sometimes, once the sale has been made, people aren’t so quick to respond.) So, I really think it is down to you that I continue to advertise in the Yorkshire Herald.

Galloway Antiques Fairs

I have always enjoyed our working relationship, you are always polite, easy to deal with and always provide me with all the relevant information about the different publications.

Bijou Bridal Boutique

Since our working relationship begun, Shane has always been very polite and courteous on the phone. He always calls for payment at the specified time and he is always very prompt at sending through email notifications and draft adverts for approval. One additional attribute is that is I say ‘No’ to a proposal, Shane accepts the answer and doesn’t try to influence me or change my mind, no hard sell which I appreciate very much.

DPH Darlington Limited

On initial contact with Shane, he explained who he was and why he was ringing and went on to give full details of the offer for the advertisement. He did speak to David Cooper who managed to negotiate a reduced rate. Once the details were confirmed and payment was made, the advert was installed on the website efficiently. Shane was pleasant and informative without being too pushy therefore that is why we agreed to place the advert. Overall we’re satisfied with the service.

Rapier Employment Limited

I have been very impressed with your customer service and your forethought to contact me regarding placing an advert. Your manner was very friendly but professional. You answered all of my queries and questions concisely and in a very helpful manner. Our overall experience with dealing with you this week has been a pleasure and I do believe that you are an asset to your company. Thank you once again for your excellent customer service.
