NEW CATAGORY! : I will now be including a “Churches / Worship – Listing every Friday” category. All churches and worship groups may post an ad that will appear in every Friday’s issue. Ads may contain up to 20 lines of text and 1 photo. Make a note if you want me to repeat the same ad weekly (although ads that change weekly will be more likely to be read than a repeat).

I insert the Sender’s name and email address automatically into posts as the Contact name/email, replacing any other email address or name the post may contain. I use this format: examplename AT gmail DOT com.

Enter new target file size for your images as 2000Kb or 2Mb. Try it, it’s easy!

Submission Photos: Please send in ONLY ONE pic per item, readers can email you for more. If you send in extra pics, I will choose the pic to post. Job lot sales may post up to 3 pics.  In any case, “For Sale” ads may have no more than 3 pics total.
