Welcome to the Publicity Handbook
(see http://wiki.ilovefreegle.org/Category:Freegle_PR for all wiki entries in this handbook)
We all recognise the need for effective publicity and promotion of our groups and Freegle. The sections and pages in this section offer you ideas and resources to increase your group profile and membership and grow Freegle as an organisation.
Development Working Group is the central Freegle working group that deals with 'all things publicity'. All Freegle volunteers are welcome to join this group to share and get ideas.
Our Media Director posts regular reports of her activity - Media Updates.
