Do you know where "trivia" comes from? It is understood the Romans used notice boards on the junction of three roads to post information for local people - hence tri via.
New Noticeboard for The Ashtead Queen Elizabeth II Playing Field (née 'The Rec')
The new Noticeboard for the rec has now been installed next to the trampoline area. This was kindly donated by The Rotary Club of Ashtead and was made by Norbury Park Sawmill.
This noticeboard has been installed so that local schools, groups, clubs and local residents can advertise their events and local services that are relevant to the village.
The two Notice Boards previously owned and maintained by Mole Valley Council in Craddocks Parade and the APMH Car Park have been taken over by the Residents' Association. Whereas previously the boards were used for Council business, the Association is opening them up for general use.
The Boards will be to advertise ARA events and information plus local events, with priority for Ashtead organisations regardless of location e.g. The Choral Society performing at Dorking Halls. It is not intended that the boards be used for "Lost Cat" etc. There is a local drop-off point for posters in the village at Jackie Quinn, Estate Agents. There will be no charge for displaying items. However posters stuck to the outside of the board will be removed. Posters/advertising should be typed and clearly legible (large font preferred).
Pam Ventham-Smith is to be responsible for the boards on a day-to-day basis. Representatives of any Ashtead based group or society can contact her to advertise their activities or any specific events, being held in the village or elsewhere in Mole Valley. As in previous years, details of local election candidates and results will also be displayed at appropriate times.
Posters will be displayed free of charge, providing they are clear, easy to read, and do not relate to commercial or political activities. To enable as wide a range of information as possible can be displayed, each poster will be limited to A4 size (29.5 x 21.0cms).
