Most of them were clean, but as I said, I cut and pasted a load, so there may be the odd one...........

You've got plenty of time to proof read them. :lol:

La Fiama - in last year's programme, did you put a list of the charity stalls that were going to be at the carnival? Just wondered what you thought of that and what problems I might encounter with the idea.

Hmph! Just wondered what problems I might encounter with doing it for next year. We'll see what 'La' has to say. :roll:

Some of Diggers jokes are really funny! I can't stop chuckling to myself and I read them an hour ago! :lol:

I definitely think we should have a 'Just for fun' page, or pages. :lol: Karen suggested we have a three column programme next year and the 'one liners' will go great with that format, or maybe we can do a separate 'one liner' as a footer to each page, that way each page might get read! :lol:

We had a meeting this afternoon to get the programme started and decided it will be in a three column format to allow for small adverts on the outer colum and information in the inner two. So where information needs to be in a two page spread such as the parade route, events, showground map, etc, it will be like this...

Image

So we can offer smaller adverts in a premium position at a charge of £5 per cm column. Full page ads will be charged at £100, half page £50, quarter £30 and one sixth column ads at £10 each. So, contact me or Tania if you want an ad!

We are intending to have quite a bit of content and we're listening to your suggestions so keep them coming. So far I've got Diggers jokes, puzzles, old photos. What else would you like to see?

Remember the reason people purchase a programme and that is to see what on at the carnival

Remember the production of the carnival programmes need to be paid for, e.g. the adverts, then.... you make a profit on the sale of the programmes, which also have all the carnival details included

if you make to much of a profit it on it then the tax man comes after the committee

Interesting.... I would have thought the tax man looked at the final accounts, i.e. the total income and expense, which would probably even each other out....

As you will see from my mock diagram (very nicely done, don't you think? ) it is the centre page with the main arena events. That's where the premium rate ads will be! We are having three main double pages, one with the parade route, one with events and one with a map of the showground. All these will be premium ad pages. I think I said this in my previous post!

We are aiming to cover production costs with ads and then the sale of programmes will go to fund other carnival events.

I will need some volunteers to help me sell programmes in the parade and at the bridge on the Carrs.

Can I just add also that in previous years those who have done the programme have been volunteers who's jobs don't usually involve doing things like this, so are to be commended not just for their time but for their effort and willingness to take it on. However, next year, the team includes: Karen - graphic designer, Tania - Warsop News editor, Me - publisher and communications manager. So, we are all professionals and if we can't do this there's something wrong!
