Stockport Council and its employees celebrate #OurDay

Over 20,000 people learnt about some of the different services Stockport Council delivers as part of the yearly tweetathon #OurDay

From learning how to make Stockport more cycle friendly to street lighting upgrades, and road improvements to affordable housing, over 20 tweets passed through Stockport Council’s Twitter account.

As part of its third year of taking part in the national Local Government Association event, Stockport Council posted personal experiences from its staff in order to put faces to some of its services.

Councillor Elise Wilson, Cabinet Member for Reform and Governance, said: “Thank you to everyone who got involved on Tuesday and supported the Council. It’s great to recognise all the different services we have and how hard the staff who provide those services work.

“Throughout the day we reached thousands of people which is a tremendous effort. We really are overwhelmed with how many people got involved from and inside and outside of the Council.

“Despite only giving our followers on Twitter a flavour of the services we offer, it was great to share some of the key work we’re currently delivering as well as sharing some of our crucial day-to-day services such as Stockport Family and our highways team.”
