Kinross man Brian Morgan
of the Scottish Military Vehicle Group gave the thumbs up to Upland, an art event at Cultybraggan, near Comrie. It featured work by students and staff from Edinburgh College of Art, including Sarah Jones, left, and Gemma Crook.
PERTH AND Kinross Council has introduced social media pages to help it communicate with its tenants.
The local authority has set up accounts on both Facebook and Twitter and will use them to provide tenants with the latest news and information.
The social media sites were launched after tenants told the council in last year’s satisfaction survey that they wanted to be kept better informed about ser vice changes and decisions which affected them. Less than a week after being set up, the Facebook page has 170 likes, while 60 people have begun following the Twitter feed.
Housing and health convener Dave Doogan, said: “Twitter and Facebook will enable us to further connect with our tenants and communicate information to them instantly about service changes, local events and events happening in their neighbourhoods.
“We have reacted to what people told us in the tenant satisfaction survey by launching these new ways for our tenants to keep in touch with what’s going on. I would encourage all tenants to sign up to these valuable services.”
The Twitter feed is @ PKCTenants and there is a Facebook page for Perth and Kinross council tenants.
