Castle Vale Social Media Surgery  

No upcoming dates

Birmingham LINk is really keen to support organisations involved in health and social care in Castle Vale. They also welcome Castle Vale's voluntary and community groups to a series of social media surgeries.

These surgeries are informal gatherings for individuals, community and voluntary groups to learn how to use the web and social media to communicate, campaign and collaborate.

The next surgery is on Friday,18 February 2011 between 2:30-4pm. We'll be in the main hall at The Sanctuary, Tangmere Drive, Castle Vale, Birmingham B35 7PX.

You can drop by at any time that you can and we will try to pair you up with one of our Social Media Surgeons - who are all ordinary people with knowledge and experience of using social media in a variety of ways.
