Dear Banbury Guardian. I am a small business running children’s parties. As this is a weekend based business I can only hope to do 4 parties a week with just myself, and with growing demand I wanted to advertise with you for another entertainer. This not a big money business, however even small businesses have to grow which is why a local part time job advertised in your paper might suit someone in Banbury perfectly. HOWEVER – your cheapest advert when I rang to enquire in recruitment was over £3000!!! For 1 WEEK!!! If I can fully book my new recruit with 2 parties a week I could hope to make maybe £20 a week from them. It would therefore take me 3 years to just pay you for your advert! That is assuming that I find exactly the right person in 1 week and that they work out and I get fully booked. This is not supportive of new small businesses. I am trying to provide training and great experience which could really suit someone, and to make a start in growing my company. My local paper really should have been the perfect medium for this, however you have made it impossible.www.cometomyparty.net If anyone reading this does know of anyone who would like to join Come To My Party in children’s party entertainment do get in touch!!
