Reserve your 22village Book/CD online
In order to estimate the quantity of 22village books/CDs that should be ordered, we are asking each team leader of the 25 communities to complete this form aimed at gauging the level of interest for this unique local publication. The current provisional print quantity would allow 35 copies of each format per community, a positive response to this form should allow us to increase the print run ensuring no  one is disappointed. The book (5) will be A4 in size with 100 pages in colour with a chapter on each local village and town. The CD-ROM (3) will be an exact copy of the 25 web sites that can be browsed from the CD drive rather than having to connect to the Internet. There is also a small credit card sized CD-ROM for individual villages, this can be personalised and costs 5.00. Individuals can reserve online by clicking here.
