socialmedia2We’ve joined the social media era at last!

The Bishopston Society is trying to champion its work more widely, extend its reach, and broaden its demographic. We’re also trying to catch up with what most community organisations do online these days (and have done for most of this century!).

We’re also looking for more two-way engagement, so want TBS members and the wider public to share with each other, and with us, news and views on Bishopston’s heritage, assets & amenities, community culture and its future.

So the Bishopston Society finally has Facebook and Twitter accounts. These don’t duplicate what we are doing with our own web site but sit alongside them to help us work towards the above goals.

Please take a look at our social media story so far via and

In these early days we need your Facebook “Likes”, and we want more followers on Twitter! Please comment or post to our Facebook page, mention us by quoting our Twitter handle @BishSoc in your own tweets, or just retweet the posts of ours you find interesting.

More information is available via the above social media channels themselves.

Here on our main site you’ll see our new social media integration features. You can now:-

  • Go straight to our Facebook, Twitter or Flickr channels using the icons at the top right of ever page
  • See the latest on Facebook and Twitter on the right hand side of each page (and click through for more)
  • Issue a tweet, Facebook "Like" or Share with a link to the article you've read using the buttons at the end of any individual article.

Oh yes, and we’re already on another social media channel. We’re using Flickr, and in fact have been quietly doing so for some years, for our photo library: "Latest photo albums" highlights this near the foot of the front page.
