The Highfields Gala Event will be held over the weekend of 7th and 8th May 2011. It will be a tribute to the late Jack Baker and in aid of Audlem Scouts and Guides.
Bookings are now being taken for those organisations who wish to be involved in what promises to be a massive event.
If booking, please respond to me, Rod Cottrell, The Long House, Kinsey Heath, Audlem CW3 0DR or tel: 01270 811454 or 07788 926634.
Focus on AudlemOver twenty five local organisations and businesses have already booked space for Focus on Audlem, a trade arcade at the Highfields Gala. As an enterprise or business firm, we invite you to take part in this splendid event with many attractions — see below.
We can offer a number of ways to promote yourselves such as:
- Your menu, catalogue, price list or open letter describing yourself on one of the noticeboards in the arcade
- Have a stand of your own making in the arcade
- Have a table or display in the arcade
- Have a gazebo of your own on the trade area
The cost? A prize for the Giant Tombola, suitably with your name on the item or service offered to give a little publicity,
£5 for a display or table; a little more for a gazebo.
It is your participation that is required!
