Wakefield Civic Society has today set up an Instagram account to add to its existing Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Society president Kevin Trickett MBE said that while this may not seem a particularly momentous announcement, it is an important part of our social media strategy to reach out to a wider audience beyond our traditional membership.
We are an active and successful civic society but we need to be able to show and tell people what we do; the more people who know about our work, the better. Not only people be able to find out about we are doing via our website and social media accounts, they will also hear about our programme of events – many of which are open to the general public and are often free to attend.
We plan to use our Instagram account to show Wakefield at its best. One of our committee members, Fay Dell, is running the account for us and is collecting photographs of Wakefield’s architecture and natural beauty to showcase the city to our growing number of followers on social media. Fay has asked that Wakefield Civic Society members send her any photographs of the city that they would like to see published on-line.
