Thanks to our lovely sponsors …

It is wonderful to see so many of our sponsors renewing their sponsorship of Bude and Beyond – a big thanks to them. Their contribution keeps it free for you, the reader, so we hope that in return you will support these local businesses wherever possible.

Sponsored advertising costs just £100 for the year, which includes a rotating advert and lots of social media sharing. People/companies can also advertise jobs and their new products/services during the year. Do get in touch if you want to join our supporting sponsors – email

For food, drink and live music, we have the amazing Preston Gate pub in Poughill, which offers a warm welcome and a fabulous array of ales and other drinks. It is currently putting together its live music programme for 2022.

Also on the food and drink front, we have the amazing Bellini’s Deli Kitchen for innovative locally-sourced produce for delivery or collection, and Norton Barton. Norton Barton Artisan Food Village, specialising in charcuterie, rum and savoury biscuits, has been closed during various lockdowns but you can still buy online.
