We're constantly creating new posters, with specific goals, so check back regularly to see what's new.


If you think you can create better, more eye-catching posters to raise the profile of Somerset ME Awareness Year, we'd love to see them. Please feel free to have a go at redesigning our posters and send us the results.

Our goal is to get a minimum of 3000 posters up and being displayed throughout Somerset. You can do your part by downloading and displaying posters in your office, school or on your community notice board. Please remember to seek permission where appropriate when putting up posters.
