Fasset Confirms Corporate Support For New Community Newspaper: PO9 Created on 21/02/2012 15:48:00
National facilities management company Fasset Ltd has confirmed its commitment to the new Havant community newspaper PO9.
Based at Langstone Technology Park (LTP), Fasset is one of a select number of companies that have agreed to become corporate sponsors of the new full colour free newspaper. Set to have a circulation of 25,000, the newspaper will be distributed directly to residential PO9 areas and via designated points, of which LTP is one.
The paper is being published by ‘Postcode Publications’ who plan to roll this initiative out into other postcodes within the Havant Borough in the coming months. The first edition is due out imminently and promises to be both non-commercial and non-political; instead featuring local community stories, news and events.
Fasset is also sponsoring and hosting the official launch of the newspaper at the business park on Friday 2nd March where The RT Hon David Willetts MP will be the guest speaker. Local businesses and community contacts are being invited to the event where the publication will showcase what it can offer both in advertising opportunities and editorial content. Gary Medlow, Managing Director - Fasset Ltd comments: “Langstone Technology Park is right in the heart of the business community in Havant with over 35 businesses based onsite, employing around 3,500 people between them. We already support a number of community initiatives, events and partnerships and PO9 will give us the opportunity to make this information available to a wider audience. I am looking forward to the launch event and wish David and his team the best of luck with the first edition”.
Postcode Publications also plan to launch the ‘Havant Community Chest’ later in the year to use surplus funds raised for good causes locally. Further information about how to apply for resources will be made available nearer the time.
