Tree poster policy

Posters on trees is a great way to get the word around. And if we manage this well then we will probably be allowed to carry on (the Council are cautious because they don’t – and not do we – want the trees covered in commercial advertising). To see how best to spread 50 posters to get good coverage, this map might be useful SCAN0151_000

So help us all keep the possibility by following these guidelines

  • A4 or smaller on trees (A3 is fine in front windows or on trees or placards inside people’s front gardens)
  • Just paper – please don’t laminate them – in essence the tree posters are to be transient notices of imminent events. Something laminated is just too permanent and encourages others to to likewise.
  • Also the plastic plackets imply a degree of permanence and do get to look very tacky. It’s acknowledged that inkject printers run but they are getting less common and if need be people can approach a friend with a laser printer or photocopy at the Centre.
  • No posters in the parks even for park events. There is a noticeboard in the lower park and (as an exception to the laminate “rule”) a laminated A4 notice can be put on each gate for park matters.
  • No more than 50 or so over the whole area. A map is attached showing that this does provide adequate coverage.
  • Finally, and most importantly, everyone to remove posters once they are no longer useful. With events this is easy. When people are advertising new services it’s trickier to judge, but once a poster has been up for a fortnight most people who would be interested would have seen it. So if you are doing this sort of advertising – put small box on the poster with the date when you have put it up and the date by which you will remove it. If left in place after then, fair game for others to remove them, along with any other out of date event poster.
