Do you want to promote your forthcoming event to local people in West Berkshire and  the surrounding areas? If so, Penny Post offers an affordable and effective way of reaching over 3,000 local residents each week through the Penny Post community newsletter as well as many more directly through the website and as a result of Penny Post’s carefully targetted social-media activity.

Events can be promoted in two ways:
• In the weekly Penny Post e-newsletter
• On the Penny Post website calendar

Cost

If you are a member of the Penny Post Business Club then an agreed number of event listings in the newsletter will be part of your package. If you have a number of events to publicise then Business Club membership is the most efficient way of doing this. Click here for how to join the Business Club.

A single event promotion in the newsletter costs £30. Discounts may be available for multiple promotions over a limited time period (eg arts festivals).

If you run classes or courses on a commercial basis, please click here for more information.

In general, no charge is made for listing charitable events.

Events also need to be posted on the Penny Post website calendar: there is no charge for this unless you a commercial organisation and not as Business Club member (if so, please contact us to discuss):
• If you are a Business Club member you will have log-in details for you to do this yourself.
• If you are not, please click here and then on ‘Post your event’ at the top. It may take up to 48 hours for your event to appear.

How it works

Email us your event listing to advertising@pennypost.org.uk by 10am Thursday (and sooner if possible but no more than six days in advance) for promotion in that week’s newsletter. The event will at our discretion also be promoted on social media.

Please ensure that your copy is pasteable (ie not a PDF), correct and complete in this format:

Auction Night, 2 – 4pm, St Trinians School, RG24 7HW Great bargains to be had. Tickets £10 (inc light supper) from sample@contactdetails.com

If you send us an event for inclusion in the newsletter, you need also to ensure that it’s posted on the Penny Post website calendar – see above.

What subscribers and advertisers think

“Thank you so much for including the Fair in Penny Post and helping us to promote the event.”
Hungerford Christmas Fair

“I really appreciate the help Penny Post give me in publicising my Neighbourhood Watch meetings and including links to my handouts… Penny Post newsletters go out to a large circulation and is an asset to the local community.”
Newbury & Thatcham Neighbourhood Watch

“Just to say thanks for continuing to send your wonderful Penny Post – it’ s been very useful to spread news about events and drum up interest in all things local (about time!) and raise much needed funds for many local societies and events. Keep it up and I look forward to the next one!”
V.C., Welford

“I just want to say a big thank you to the Penny Post for alerting me to the launch meeting of the Hungerford Young Performers last night. I took my eldest son along and he loved it. I would have overlooked this opportunity if it hadn’t been for Penny Post.” 
D.M., Hungerford

Penny Post has helped me raise awareness for the charity I collect everyday rubbish for. Penny spent time understanding the objectives of the charity and making sure the information was completely accurate.”
