Suddenly the pace of activity is really accelerating. With just over five weeks to go until the Autumn Fair and Heritage Weekend, our people are certainly in action mode.
Posters are appearing in local shops and libraries and on community noticeboards. If we could find someone to wear a sandwich board with the graphics on we would do so … (it would make a change from running the gauntlet of “chuggers”).
Raffle tickets are being distributed and eagerly snapped up while publicity leaflets are popping through thousands of letterboxes. The plan for the siting of the marquees is virtually complete, though it could still accommodate an unexpected late entrant to add to the proceedings.
Now the emphasis switches to media coverage and publicity, but please feel free to spread the word. Our greatest asset is our community — there’s nothing new about “social networking” , it just has a modern title and is faster than the traditional communication channels. Hence our Facebook Group.
