MORE ABOUT SWELLENGRAM ……..
- Its mission is to become a strong community ‘binder’, to foster a spirit of pride and optimism in the enterprises in the local area, and to keep residents fully informed of opportunities, emergencies, events as well as facilitating business networking
- It is an extremely popular publication, because it is so useful.
- Local events are published in calendar format, updated at least twice a week. Lost cat, dogs and parrots have everyone looking out for them – lifts for people and parcels, jobs, accommodation, services and interesting items and articles which have everyone laughing or crying – all these make up the core of the Swellengram
- It does not have a political or religious bias, but does allow some ‘soap-box’ moments when people want to bring important local matters to everyone’s attention. This is not available for niche rants or railing about the world in general.
- IDEA FACTORY. The Swellengram is associated with the IDEA FACTORY which is a movement for constructive change.
- NEW: The Honesty Gram: for one person start-up businesses or organisations with limited funding: Up to 5 grams will be placed at no charge, and if they prove effective, a voluntary donation is then made by the business or organisation – the amount to be determined by the advertiser themselves. Thus it can be whatever you feel is fair for the service provided.
- Advertising is FREE for individuals and one off events, and for charitable functions and fundraising
