The Sandbach Directory (established in May 2006), is one of five magazines, part of The Effective Directories magazine group. It is hand delivered directly through letterboxes of 11,000 different homes across this area. Our magazines are printed monthly and are distributed to different homes across a 2-month period (5,300 homes one month, then a different 5,500 homes the second month). This ensures the maximum coverage across the area, allows us to keep our advertising costs low, and increases the longevity of our magazines, as readers keep hold of their copy until their next one is delivered. It also ensures we are playing our part in being kinder to the environment, by helping to reduce wastage from our magazines. In addition, our magazines are also delivered every month to high street businesses, local libraries and other local information points.

Areas covered across Sandbach include – Central areas of Sandbach, Sandbach Heath, parts of Smallwood and Arclid, Elworth, Wheelock, Etiley Heath and parts of Winterley. We continually review our distribution area and have recently added in newer developments - Elworth Hall Farm, Farriers Green, Saxon Lea, Heron Way, Elworth Park, Elworth Gardens, Gilberts Cross, Texaco Estate, Bramley Wood, The Cross, Abbey Fields & Albion Locks. More detailed distribution maps are available below.

Our glossy A5 magazines are professionally produced in a high-quality format. The magazines are full of useful information, editorials, community features, reviews, competitions along with local businesses advertising their products and services. They have become a valued reference point and are enjoyed by our many readers of all ages.
