A pre-election period will be in force from Friday 24 March 2023 to 10pm Thursday 4 May 2023 prior to the Elmbridge Borough and Claygate Parish elections. For six weeks before an election a pre-election period exists when we are unable to display community posters as we are required to display statutory notices only.

We maintain 29 noticeboards across the Borough.

These boards are updated with a variety of:

  • charitable or non-profit making community information

  • police and other partner organisation information

  • pre-election material.

Council-related posters take priority and other posters will be displayed if there is room.

Please noteThis is a free service and we are unable to guarantee all posters submitted will be displayed but we will make every effort to try.  

Display your notice

If you would like to display a notice:

  • please supply 29 copies of your notice, A5 portrait size (at least 4 weeks prior to your event if it is date specific)
  • send your notices to: Communications Team, Civic Centre, High Street, Esher, Surrey, KT10 9SD
  • due to the popularity of the boards, we cannot guarantee that notices will be displayed for more than 2 weeks.

If you have any queries about what can be displayed please email 

Restrictions on use

We can display flyers for local, not-for-profit, charitable events, such as a village or church fete, school open day, amateur sports day or music concert. This includes educational, religious, cultural, recreational or social events (but not commercial events).

We cannot display information relating to political parties, activities promoting businesses or other profit making organisations or commercial advertising. 

For six weeks before an election a pre-election period exists when we are unable to display community posters as we are required to display statutory notices only.

  • Twitter: videos and images work well, consider character limit
  • Instagram: moving more to a video platform, hashtags work well.
  • Facebook: works best when posting into groups, try not to recycle posts, responds to new content, event function good to use.
