We are delighted to be hosting another Twitter takeover at the end of this month – we’ve had some really interesting conversations! Our next guest host will be Cornwall College, who will be asking what is needed in the community for the young people of Camborne.
What do teenagers want to see in their town’s future? What would be exciting to them? What would make them want to stay in the town? What facilities would they want to use right now?
Twitter takeovers are a great way to get a conversation going on a particular subject. It’s important for the Town Deal project to make sure we are tuned into the community, hearing what they want on a variety of themes.
This helps us to make sure we represent the community’s views in developing the details of the nine projects included in the Town Deal. It’s just one way we’re trying to find out more about what the community need and want.
Visit Cornwall hosted a takeover of our Twitter account in January, talking about Camborne’s rich heritage and history and how those stories can be brought to a wider audience. This was followed by a Creative Kernow takeover just a few weeks later, discussing how we can support our makers, creatives and performers and broaden the cultural offer in Camborne.
Tweets from these conversations have been seen over 20,000 times so far, bringing the conversation about what’s needed in Camborne to a wide and informed audience. Future conversations will be on the subjects of health and wellbeing and supporting our older residents.
There will be lots to explore in this conversation. If you’re interested in joining in, you just need to head over to Twitter and follow @CamborneDeal.
