Shadow Column

2016-08-03 06:00

THE Greytown Gazette publishes a Shadow Column at the end of each month listing events to come in the year.

The objective is to notify the public of what events are scheduled to take place in order to avoid, as far as possible, two events on the same date. This "double dating" could create problems not only for the organisers but also for members of the public wanting to support the events.

Therefore an appeal goes out to schools, welfare organisations, churches NGOs, sports bodies, clubs etc. tom submit dates and details of events to the Greytown Gazette for publication.

It is easy, just email greytown phone 033 413 2310 or fax 033 413 1933.
