I had signed up to arena digital to have a full screen advert in a builders merchants,


everything was fine until


December I got an invoice from them for £990.00.


I told that I had paid all monies due,


but unknown to me it was a rolling contract. this is where the problem starts,


When you sign for the advert they don't tell you,

you have to give 12 months notice,

therefore if you wanted to only have one year

then you had to cancel the same day that you sign the contract?


I got a company called Parker Newbury chasing me for the debt,

after agreed a payment plan and made the 1st payment,

as I get 4 updates I decided to amend my advert,


When I got to the site I found that my advert only covered 2/3rds of the screen,

the other 1/3rd was being used by the Builders merchants.


I complained to Parker Newbury who have now threatened to make my company insolvent


any help anyone

So you arranged payment to a debt that you didnt challenge and might even be unenforceable though possible unfair terms in the contract?

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

We are in a similar situation with Arena Digital, where we signed up to advertising in Builders Merchants and after the 2 year contract we are being perused for another 2 years. We were never informed this was a rolling contract and that 12 months cancellation was required. The advert was not forfilled by Arena so we have a legal dispute against them which our solicitor has put to them. We are now being threatened with a Winding up Order by Parker Newbury who claim there is no legal reason for non payment. Has anyone else got these cowboys chasing them for money?

Did you get anywhere with this? We have a similar situation where we posted a letter to cancel, but as we did not send my recorded delivery they are chasing us for debt for a contract which we already cancelled.

Arena digital productions Ltd are now in liquidation :-)


I too was fobbed off by the company and their lying sales rep.


Cut a long story short I ended up paying Parker Newbury £10 per month (it was all they were getting off me)Parker Newbury No longer replies nor does the account accept my debt payment.


Good riddance to a shambolic company.
