It’s #OurDay to shine as Sefton celebrates the wonderful life of council staff
Sefton Council is joining local authorities across the country to celebrate their role in their local communities.
Billed as a Tweetathon, #OurDay is organised by the Local Government Association (LGA) to give councils the opportunity to highlight the many ways they improve the lives of their residents.
This year, Sefton Council wants local residents to come forward with stories and examples of the way in which the services it provides make a difference to their lives.
The Corporate Communications team at Sefton Council is pulling together a wide range of content to share on the day and in the build up to the event.
Cllr Ian Maher, Labour Leader at Sefton Council said:
“The local authority has faced major challenges in recent times and continues to do so. I am proud to say that our workforce and the many volunteers who support us have been a credit to public service, making sure that we are still able to make a huge difference to the lives of local residents.
“Every day is Our Day at Sefton Council, but it is great to see a national day that recognises the brilliant work that takes place. I would really like to see our service users come forward to tell us the many ways the council makes a difference to their lives.”
Nicky Speed, Corporate Communications Manager at Sefton Council also commented:
“In Corporate Communications we often hear good news stories about the selfless work carried out by our workforce and volunteers. Our Day is a welcome opportunity to really shine a light on those individuals, while reminding local residents of the scale of the work carried out by the local authority.
“Last year’s event saw over 20 million reached nationally on social media as #ourday trended. It would be pleasing to see Sefton play a role in achieving this number or better once again.
“While messages will be predominantly shared via our Twitter account, we will also be using other social media channels, such as Instagram and Facebook. Watch this space…”
