As a resident, what attracted me to my local council social media channels, was the ones who regularly update with info about what is going on, both headline “events” but also small scale local things- like road closures, community gatherings. Have discovered several local things like nature reserves I never knew about, through postings of cleanup events, or open days.

And as people below said – lots of photos, info about people, opportunities to have my say, and competitions (prizes dont have to be cash-based – access or insider tours – yes, I did enjoy visiting our local massive high tech recycling facility!)
