Surprisingly we received feedback from followers who are Swindon people now living elsewhere in the UK or abroad. Swindonians from Liverpool, Thailand, America, and Canada following our campaign, often leaving message of thanks on the posts.
Lockdown 2020 – 2021
During the Covid-19 lockdown period of early 2020, people who were isolating and missing being out and about in Swindon, send us lots of direct messages and commented on our social media posts.
The photos we were taking, publishing, and sharing from others who used the #We_Are_Swindon, gained massive attraction and engagement. We received direct messages of thanks and supporters commented on the posts about how happy they were to see the cherry blossom trees in our Town Gardens because they couldn’t get to them themselves.
As more of the older generation use online platforms to gain information and communicate, our social media accounts are becoming increasingly popular – everyone has the ability to enjoy everything our town has to offer, especially when they cannot travel there in person.
