Changes in the Published Calendar

Old Format
I have been publishing a few editions of a hard copy calendar for distribution around town.

These were in brochure format which could be picked up at a few locations.

However, these brochures -- double sided A4 folded -- didn't have the acceptance I  projected. Furthermore, when each edition ran out, there was nothing around town to supply the information these newsletters contained. 

So I'm going to change the process and in future layout, print and publish A4 sized posters which can be affixed to various locations around town. If folk want their own take home copy to go up on a pin board or refrigerator door, they'll be able to print them off directly from the web.

Each poster will be headed by the month it covers and we'll try to make it a bit arty while allowing for various listings such as 'new' events and upcoming special occasions. It will take some experimentation with layout to get the presentation right and its success will depend on local stakeholders being onside.
