Click if you ‘like’ the coun­cil

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

VIL­LAGERS are be­ing en­cour­aged to ‘like’ a coun­cil via so­cial me­dia as it launches a new on­line cam­paign.

Chal­font St Peter Parish Coun­cil has set up a Face­book page and Twit­ter ac­count as well as de­vel­op­ing its web­site.

Parish coun­cil­lor Karen Dick­son who leads the cam­paign to en­gage with the on­line com­mu­nity said: “We hope to use the op­por­tu­nity to share some good news sto­ries of work be­ing done in the vil­lage, to share in­for­ma­tion on events like the Chiltern War­rior Race tak­ing place in March, and to show support for our lo­cal shops wher­ever we can.

“Th­ese sites can also be use­ful for their fol­low­ers as a tool to warn, for ex­am­ple, when roads are flooded and when road­works may be planned for their ar­eas, or who to call in an emer­gency if a tree falls over in the ter­ri­ble winds we have been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing.

“It is about im­proved com­mu­ni­ca­tions and in­for­ma­tion shar­ing. Con­sid­er­ing our size, a lot goes on in Chal­font St Peter and we hope that more so­cial me­dia en­gage­ment will mean that more peo­ple might learn what is hap­pen­ing on their very doorsteps.”
