PLEASE HELP PROMOTE EVENTS!


posterspromoMANY THANKS to all those who put up posters for events in and around Totnes.
Totnes and Dartington are usually fairly well covered posters-wise, but nearby towns and villages sometimes miss out. Good promotion can make a huge difference to attendance at events and hence fundraising.
• Most events listed on this website have a matching printable poster available to download; printed posters are also available on the lefthand side of St Mary’s Church’s main entrance.
• It’s especially helpful if those living outside Totnes can stick up a few posters in their own neighbourhoods. (Post Offices, shops, pubs, churches and community centres are good places to start.)
