Click if you ‘like’ the council
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.”
