Community buildings and village halls are valuable and essential venues for playgroups, dance classes, spots activities, adult education, meeting, family celebrations and other activities.. Community events and groups provide key social opportunities for people to come together to celebrate or link-up with neighbours and others from their village, town or surrounding area.
This session will give volunteers that run or organise these a greater understanding of social media and how it can be used as a key marketing tool to help them promote their club, group, building or event, improve bookings/attendance and keep people informed and up-to-date on information.
