  • Saturday, September 29, 2018 at 11:00 AM
    Durham Bus Station in Durham, United Kingdom

    Eclipse # 2 Durham Distribution September

    It's time to get the paper out and into people's hands. Come join us for one of our distribution events for Eclipse #2.

    Meet Us
    Time: 11am, to start at 11:30
    Location: Durham Bus Station, North Road

    We Are Our Media team will be there with a big stack of papers and together we will spend a couple of hours getting them into people's hands, talking about the paper, chatting on and having a merry old time. As the stack reduces and as we wind down we will head to a nearby cafe and treat everyone to a warm drink and a sugary snack.

    Not done this kind of thing before? Don't worry, we will give everyone a quick induction into the day, with pointers on how to approach people, what topics are covered in the paper, answers to the kind of questions people ask about the project. And of course we will be there at all times.

    What to wear and what to bring: Remember to wrap up warm, it's the autumn and even on sunny days we are likely to get a bit cold. Hats, gloves and scarves are advisable. Today we will mainly be under cover, but if it is raining an umbrella or anorak may also be a good idea - we will have a few umbrella's just in case but always helpful to bring your own. We will station someone with a stack of papers throughout the event so you can always leave your extra layers with them.

    Arriving late? Not to worry. The team may have spread out but there will always be someone stationed outside of the bus station with the stack of papers and a friendly face. Embarrassed by how late you are arriving? Don't be! We will be so happy to see you and an injection of fresh energy is always totally mint.

    We have a small pot of money to help with transport costs for anyone who needs it.

    Clearly this is a free event, but we are trying to keep information about who has come to help us where so that we can keep in touch etc. So if you can, R.S.V.P. please do.
