‘The Friday-Ad’, born in 1975 with the launch in Sussex as the UK’s first free classified paper. It came about, after founders Mr and Mrs Kidger needed to sell their car, but realised there was nowhere for them to advertise it. It inspired them to begin printing a 2 sided paper for all the locals to advertise their goods. This rapidly grew into a 12 page publication within a year. Our online platform Friday-Ad.co.uk launched in 1994, and those same core values have remained ever since, making it become one of the UK's leading classified websites.
