- Create a poster and put it up (responsibly) in your village shop, fuel station, local farm shop, country store, vets, village notice board etc.
- Use social media to promote your event – create a Facebook event and get your members to share it
- If attracting junior members, speak with your local schools or community groups who may share a poster with young people
- Make any new members welcome – make sure you include them in any social activities
- Don’t forget to encourage new members to get signed up – print off some membership forms
