A New Home for “Lepus” the Hare!

For over 20 years the logo of Vale Press has been a hare.

It represented our rural heritage; our environmentally green credentials and the need, in the fast-moving world of print, to move swiftly. (And where it also helps to have near 360 degree vision!).

Vale Press were, therefore, proud to sponsor the 2017 Cotswold Hare Trail – which culminated in Friday evening’s auction of this year’s 5ft high painted hares.

We were delighted to win the bid for one of the hares which helped raise money to support the National Star College, Ullenwood, Nr Cheltenham, who do brilliant work with young people with severe and complex disabilities.

“Lepus” was designed by students of Cirencester College and includes small neon studded lights to represent several constellations of stars – including “Lepus” (The Hare).

Having spent the summer in St. John’s Parish Church, Cirencester, “Lepus” is now en route to a permanent new home at Vale Press.

Here is “Lepus” with Florence Beetlestone, the inspirational genius behind the Hare Trail, and Paul Martin (of Flog It! fame) who acted as auctioneer for the evening raising several tens of thousands of pounds for charity.


Proud to be sponsoring Shottery RFC.

We’re pleased to be, once again, sponsoring Shottery RFC.

Here at Vale we’re keen to support local sports groups.

We offer heavily subsidised print for a number of local charities, sports clubs and community projects and print vouchers for local young entrepreneurs and start-up businesses.

Vale MD Tom Stowe, is very much involved in local rugby – so if that’s your sport please get in touch by calling him on 01386 858900 or email: sales@printrugby.co.uk

If it’s Thursday ….

If it’s Thursday at Vale ….. then it’s the day that our friends from ECO Work-Shop come and give us a helping-hand.


Eco Work-Shop is based near Stratford-upon-Avon and does a fantastic job in supporting adults, from local towns and villages, who have learning disabilities or autism, by providing purposeful, real work activities that develop skills and abilities.

Vale Press Ltd are delighted to help out with advice and printing requirements for our community partners, Eco Work-Shop.

Above all, though, the team at Vale really welcomes the opportunity to engage through our regular, weekly work placement managed by Vale Press Operations Director, Oliver Stowe.
