Join Our Community Councils Hour on Twitter

News story posted: 18/10/2016

scottish community councils hourWe are hosting our very first Scottish Community Councils Hour on Twitter on 8th November 2016. Starting at 8pm, we will tweet questions over the course of an hour, encouraging community councils on Twitter to get involved by tweeting using the hashtag #ScottishCCs.



The Scottish Community Councils website, which is managed by Improvement Service and funded by Scottish Government, is a resource to support both experienced community councillors and people looking to learn more about community councils, through news, funding opportunities, events, and other relevant information and guidance.

Scottish Community Councils Hour aims to create a space where community councils can share knowledge, discuss experiences, and network, and also to raise awareness of the great work community councils do and encourage others to get involved locally.


To give you time to prepare, the times and questions for Scottish Community Councils Hour are listed below. Remember to include an A for answer and the number of the question that you’re answering  (e.g. A3: We regularly arrange… or A6: We are collecting…) and #ScottishCCs in your answer. The Twitter event aims to be a live and interactive session so please do not tweet your answers before the questions have been tweeted on 8th November. If you can’t attend at that time, we’d still be happy to receive your answers following the event as replies to our tweets.


8:00pm - Q1 Where are you tweeting from?

8:05pm - Q2 How do you engage with your community?

8:15pm - Q3 How do you work collaboratively with local businesses and other community groups?

8:25pm - Q4 How do you network with other community councils?

8:35pm - Q5 What is the proudest achievement of your community council?

8:45pm - Q6 What does your community council have planned in coming months?


If well received we would be happy to host more Scottish Community Council Hours and call out for topic suggestions.
