Leaflets and posters drive hundreds to protest
July 20, 2010 by Gareth
Small businesses in Peterborough looking for really cost effective advertising methods could learn a thing or two from a local parish councillor in the area. Yaxley Parish Councillor, Ann Rees, gathered enormous support for her cause by printing leaflets and posters and distributing the leaflets to residents across Yaxley, and displaying the posters across the village. Rees’ methods were in response to a travellers’ site plan that is proposed for Great Drove. Huntingdon District Council has proposed 17 permanent sites for travellers and gypsies, one of which is in Yaxley.
The posters and leaflets were to encourage people to show their support and come to a public meeting in Queen’s Park Pavilion in Yaxley. So successful were they that the village centre had to grind to a halt as over 800 local people flocked to the meeting and people struggled to make themselves heard over the crowd – though objections to the plans were greeted with applause.
Objections to the site are clearly strong and it is felt that the location is too close to the edge of Yaxley and will put pressure on the village infrastructure, including schools and medical services. The response to the meeting, with so many hundreds turning out to voice their concerns, was felt to be an overwhelming response.
If your company is looking for an overwhelming reaction to its services, there are printing services in Peterborough who would be able to offer advice and quotations for these low cost but very effective methods of advertising.
