Offers and Wants
The CGA Magazine incorporates a free "marketplace" for members, dubbed "Offers & Wants". This popular feature has been a part of our publication for more than 60 years. It's a forum where members can advertise items for sale or seek out items they need or want. We have advertised everything from antiques and jewellery to grand pianos and animal feed troughs on behalf of members.
One of the things that makes "Offers & Wants" so popular is not only the good response members receive to their adverts, but the fact that - if desired - advertising is done through an anonymous postal system, meaning advertisers need not be troubled directly with replies or queries by telephone or email (unless they wish to include these contact details in their advert).
Terms and Conditions for "Offers & Wants" adverts are as follows:
No commercial advertisements for businesses will be accepted. The CGA retains the right to refuse an advertisement at its discretion if deemed inappropriate. CGA members may request one repeat of an advertisement in the following issue of the magazine if the initial advert proves unsuccessful. Advertisements should not exceed 40 words and must contain true and accurate descriptions of goods. Advertisements for shotguns require the appropriate certificates. The CGA publishing staff cannot accept any responsibility for errors or omissions.
Placing an advertisement:
Advertisements must be printed clearly, including name, address and membership number. Email address and/or telephone number is optional. Send by post to CGA Offers & Wants, Chalke House, Station Road, Codford, Wiltshire BA12 0JX, or by email: email@example.com. Images are accepted but must be of high resolution if digital, or clear prints for scanning.
Adverts that feature an email address or telephone number can be followed up directly with the advertiser. Otherwise interested parties may reply to adverts by letter to the CGA address (above), quoting the membership number of the advertiser and month of publication. All replies are then forwarded to the relevant advertiser.
