Advertise your local business for free
A new business directory has been added to the site so that local firms can post and edit their company details for free.

The new system is being introduced so that local commercial concerns can have more control over what appears on the site.
All those running shops and services in North Mymms are eligible to use the facility as long as they comply with the site’s editorial guidelines.
Anyone running a local commercial concern can fill out a form, giving company details. If any of the details change, the user will be able to edit the entry themselves.
