On Tuesday Novemeber15th Rossendale Council took part in the Local Government Association’s (LGA) “Tweetathon” for their #OurDay campaign and we wanted to share the content with all those not on twitter as well.
#OurDay is organised by the LGA to focus on what services Councils provide, and to give communities a flavour of a typical day at the Council.
Below is the content we shared so that our communities have an insight into the work we do on a daily basis.
During the course of the day our posts gained over 19,000 online impressions.
For more information on #OurDay please viision the LGA’s website here.
