Social Media Roundup – November 2016

Social Media Roundup November 2016 header

Lots going on in November with Christmas events getting underway.

We made a real effort to publicise November’s PACT meeting. There were a few more people than normal and they told me it was really interesting.

Residents were invited to complete a survey about issues in the village and we presented the results. The Chair of the Community Council attended to tell us about their meeting with the cement company. Minutes from this meeting will be published on the Community Council website.

Read our live Tweets from the meeting.

Local artist “Millimagic” has completed her new mural in the village hall.

I met some artists at the Cardiff Christmas Market selling Castell Coch prints.

Doctor Who were back filming in Fforest Fawr.

Beautiful Autumn light in the Instagram shot.

We reported on the launch of a new fragrance brand by Castell Apothecary. Wales Online picked up the story and they got some good national coverage.

The school raised £290 for Children in Need. (At least they spelled Tongwynlais right!)

The wreath making workshop at the castle was sold out.

Drew’s photo of Castell Coch was published in The Times. Thanks for people letting me know, Drew wasn’t aware they’d published it until I told him!

Another great drone shot.

We set ourselves a target of getting 10,000 views of this post to try and stop people getting stuck in the village. We made it! People still got stuck though…

We’ve added some new items to our shop.

Alyn Wallace took this magical shot of Castell Coch.

And finally, Gale’s corner.
