Digital signage is most commonly seen in urban environments targetinglarge groups of viewers. We believe that there is also a role for pervasive technologyin smaller communities, including in rural areas that are typically late to receive thebenefits of new technologies. This chapter describes a recent pervasive advertisingdisplay deployed in Wray, a village in North West England, which was developedwith the involvement of community members and evaluated ‘in the wild’. Ourresearch contributes an exploration of rural communities as a site for pervasive digitalsignage, including our experiences relating to the design of the display and findingsrelating to its use in the community.
