Wrexham Council continues to provide its customers access to our services and information in the most appropriate channels.
Wrexham County Borough Council have set up a group on Flickr. 'Wrexham County Borough' (external link) aims to invite people to post their own pictures of Wrexham.
Using Flickr to showcase pictures of the Borough can not only help attract visitors but also show those who already live here parts of the Borough they may not have considered visiting before.
The group is available to view by anyone, but you must become a member if you wish to submit your own pictures. Submissions will go into a queue for review first before they appear on the Wrexham County Borough page. Rules (external link) are available on the group's page.
Facebook users in Wrexham are now able to access information and services normally found on our website via the Wrexham County Borough Council page (external link). The page includes feeds from our News, Jobs, and What's On.
We also use Facebook as a way of highlighting large events or campaigns. Our Summer Madness page was a huge success, the booklet’s inclusion on Facebook proved popular with residents who were able to see all the activities that were available over the Summer holidays and encouraged those from further afield to visit us.
Those who enjoy using Twitter and our website can now enjoy the best of both. We regularly update our followers with News, What's On, What's New on the Website and Food Hygiene Inspection Scores.
