Gittisham PC is on Twitter!

Gittisham Parish Council is now on Twitter https://twitter.com/GittishamPC

With all the recent rain we’ve had, we thought it might be a good idea for the parish council to have a Twitter account to post information on flooding or road closures.

Anyone already on Twitter can also post info and keep parish residents up to date.  It could be a really useful tool for getting around.

If you’re not on Twitter, you can still email clerk@gittisham.eastdevon.gov.uk and I’ll post it for you.

Happy tweeting!
