The town council has three noticeboards in the town centre and will put up posters provided by community groups if they are legal, decent and non-commercial.
In order to take advantage of this opportunity to promote your event, you will need to deliver three colour copies of your poster to the Information Centre which is now situated at the Roysse Court entrance of the Guildhall, off Bridge Street, several weeks before the event date. Posters are changed regularly. Please note that the town council cannot print your posters for you.
Some shops are willing to display community posters but as a general rule it is appreciated if you are already a customer of the shop before you ask to use their window space for free!
Stocks of small leaflets advertising an event can also be dropped off at the Information Centre where they will be displayed on the desk if the staff feel that the information is correct and useful. The Town Council cannot print your leaflets for you.
Putting up banners can be a great way of getting publicity but without the permission of the landowner and the Vale of White Horse District Council (which would provide an advertisement licence) your banner may be removed and thrown away.
Organisers of large events which are booked onto the Market Place may drop off a banner at the town council offices. These will be put up on the bollards of the Market Place in the run up to the event but any banners put up without permission may be disposed of.
