No more advertising at Cotswold picnic site

Cotswold District Council says it will no longer allow notices or promotional banners on a picnic site fence.

The council owns the fence at the site between Old Cricklade Road and the A419 Cricklade Road in Cirencester and has in the past allowed local charities to promote events free of charge. But local businesses and other organisations have also advertised their activities without permission, resulting in large numbers of notices and banners at the site.

Attaching so many notices to a wooden fence over the years has caused substantial damage, which could cause personal injury to the public. The council needs to be aware of health and safety and has decided that the fence will have to be replaced. This will be at a significant cost to taxpayers.

Once the new fence is up, the council regrets that it will no longer be able to continue its goodwill gesture of allowing charities to advertise on the fence. A notice informing the public about this decision will be placed on the new fence, advising that any banners displayed in future will be taken down.

Local charities can contact the council on 01285 623120 to help promote their activities via CDC social media accounts and the events page of the council's website.

The nearby Tesco store also allows local charities to promote events and activities on boards close to the checkouts.
