Shadow Column

2015-07-29 06:00

THE Greytown Gazette publishes a Shadow Column at the end of each month to list events to come throughout the year. The main objective is to notify the public of what events are scheduled to take place, or about to in order to avoid, as far as possible, “double dating” - that is two events on the same day which could create problems not only for the organisers, but also for the public. An appeal therefore goes out to churches, NGOs, sports bodies, clubs, etc. to submit dates and event details to the Greytown Gazette for publication as soon as possible. From now until the end of the year there are many events - social, sport, prize giving, etc, so please notify either verbally or electronically in time for the next Shadow Column.
