We received our posters today, the familiar feeling of putting Chipp Jazz posters on noticeboards far and wide came back. I've discovered there are different rules in different areas - for instance all the noticeboards in nearby King's Langley (or is it Landing still? - what's that all about??) have to have a Special Number on them at all times. Without it, the Jazz Poster Police will swiftly remove said items within 24 hours ruthlessly. They seem to have a large and efficient presence, but I've never seen them in action. Sometimes they remove posters with the correct numbers on, depends on the direction of the wind. Speaking of which, the Most Important Noticeboard in the Village (next to St Paul's School) got blown down in the recent gales, and hasn't been replaced yet. On that one, one has to laminate a no - bigger - than A4 poster and put it on the RIGHT hand side away from the Parish Council notices otherwise it will swiftly be posted over or tracked down by the Jazz Poster Police I hope the new board is bigger, it's always over occupied and I find I have to check regularly to ensure it's not been laid to rest under a sea of other posters. Some nearby villages have sealed window boards, with no clue as to who holds the key, others have an elaborate labyrinth of people Who Know About The Noticeboard to track down. I sometimes wonder if it's all worth it, there's always a vague feeling that a Jazz Poster Police Officer might be ready to pounce...
