Estate agent - sponsoring summer fair

Hi - does anyone know what the "going rate" is for schools who work with estate agents to put up boards advertising the schools' summer fair? I've seen a few suggestions - from £250 for 30 boards, to £50 per board. I'm about to ask a local estate agent - where should I pitch it?

fyi - we're a small primary school in a non-trendy (up-and-coming!) part of north London.

It varies. I know one school that gets £50 a board but has a limit on how many. We get £10 a board and have no limit on how many.

We're getting 250 for 25 boards, I think.

We get £10 for max 75 boards. I think we have too many schools with too many fairs to get anything higher.

It used to be around £200 round here. Meant they got to put about 4boards out front for about,a week beforehand.

£10 per board, don't think there is a limit

Honestly I think it varies from agent to agent - We've had from 10 to 25 quid a board, sometimes with limits sometimes not. The agents like it because a lot of people don't allow for sale boards up normally. It's worth doing the rounds of all the local agents and seeing what you get.

(Also in London, though SE)

It took me a while to raise what these things were. I thought lots of friends were moving house.

£20 per board here in SW London. No limit on the number of boards.

I've heard of another local estate agent only paying £10 though.
