Social Media Roundup – April 2016

Social Media Roundup April 2016

We’ve been busy this month with our sister site, My Cardiff North, but there’s been plenty going on in and around the village.

Our favourite photographer, Gale Jolly, has been Tweeting loads this month. If she carries on like this we’ll have to publish her own monthly article! She’s been out taking pictures of the bluebells this month.

The Assembly election is on Thursday 5th May and we’ve been putting together My Cardiff North so you know who the candidates are and what they’re saying.

There’s a dedicated page with links to candidate profiles, comments and manifestos.

There’s also the Police and Crime Commissioners election at the same time. Radio Cardiff hosted a debate with all the candidates.

There’s only been one public hustings so we went along and live Tweeted the event. We streamed it live too but this has now expired.

We’ve offered all the candidates the opportunity to write for us in our “Candidate Comments” series.

There was some drama this month when a man was rescued from 80 feet up a cliff face.

The school created another fantastic wheelbarrow for the RHS flower show.

Photographer Nick Russill took this amazing shot of Castell Coch in the morning mist, which proved very popular online. We’re hoping to publish an interview with Nick soon.

The other big thing we’ve been doing this month is creating our first Tongwynlais newsletter. Thanks to Catherine’s hard work, we managed to deliver 800 copies to every house in the village.

Abi posted this great shot of the Ironbridge with its “Pont des Arts” style locks. There’s a fair way to go before we can compete with Paris!

We’ve attended the last few PACT meetings and live Tweeted the discussion. If you can’t make these meetings, we’re happy to bring up any issues you have.

The dog mess tree in Fforest Fawr is still an issue concerning residents.

Councillor Jonathan Evans is looking for evidence of people violating the cold calling zone signs.

And finally, Jon Pountney is the new Artist in Residence at Castell Coch. We’re looking forward to seeing his work.
