The Johnston Press ‘Summer of Love’ June sales drive began with a day for the new and lapsed advertisers across all categories including Motors and Property, on Thursday 6 June.

The day has the theme of ‘Summer of Love’ and staff came into work dressed in 1970’s fancy dress.

Denise Tile, commercial manager at Yorkshire Regional Newspapers, said: “All across Johnston Press there are 700 sales people all pitching to lapsed and brand new customers.

“We’re doing really well here in Driffield, we have 14 sales people and so far we have done £9,000 which is absolutely brilliant.”
