Why can I not post my adverts on Evesham Noticeboard anymore?

Due to management time of running the group (which we have been doing for the last 7 years), it has grown to a near 22k members, and as it is a public group (reaches more hits) it has taken a huge amount of our admin's life, family time and basically waking hours to maintain a healthy, safe group with community support for Evesham. It is not a 9-5 type of job!

We know many of the businesses that have been advertising with great success appreciate the amount of time we have dedicated free but it has come to a place where it needs management and security checks for businesses attempting to post takes time. See our "What does a group admin do"

It is not something we planned to make these changes, but we need support to keep a healthy great group that supports our town. So we ask only the businesses to register and contribute. We have also invested in this website, a local marketing tool, and a community tool that supports everyone!

It is free for charities and not for profits, and anything that supports the community we are passionate about! But for businesses, we cannot continue working for free of charge. 

The pricing structure has been designed to make it affordable and with no ties ins, no contracts, you can cancel at any time.  See prices here
