Costs and contact details
Costs for a listing are £20 per year. Businesses may join at any point in the year, and will be charged £5 per quarter to the end of the current year. All renewals are due in January for the following year. Modifications may be made to listings at any time by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We reserve the right to levy an extra admin charge if amendments are excessive.
The set up and subscription costs detailed above will be reviewed each year, the costs cover the costs of management, domain and hosting expenses. The website is overseen by a website administrator who manages the domain name and hosting of the website, and content authors who update the content and are responsible for all the information displayed.
Each listing will be the same so that there is no preferential treatment. The listing will consist of 3 images, 75 character heading, 100 word description, additional information, address, telephone, mobile, email and website link. We hope the above is clear and that most of you are able to easily identify which category you may belong to. The village offers a number of quite unique interests, attractions and businesses and it may be that, in time, that some changes are made to the categories.
All clubs and societies that benefit the community are free. This is a not for profit enterprise. The team volunteer their time. Any profits made from the listings fees, once admin costs have been paid for, will be donated back to the local community
2019 Donations back to local charities
In 2019, there was £104 left over from listings fees after payment of running costs. This has been split 50/50 between the Swimming Pool and St Andrews Church.

“People attend our courses from all over the country and we don’t offer accommodation. Greystoke Online provides an invaluable resource for those wishing to research where to stay and eat locally and see what other activities and attractions exist nearby. It’s great that each time I get an enquiry I can send them a link to this website.”
“Since adding our property we’ve had a number of inquiries through the Greystoke website. This is a very useful resource for visitors and locals alike.”
