New Twitter movement

Not Just Lakes is a Twitter movement launched this week by a group of five enthusiastic locals. 

Alex Charlton and Gary Redmond, known as @KeswickBootCo @StanPalmerHonda respectively, roped in fellow tweeters Paul McLoughlin @Glocky9, Rod Harrington @CumbriaWeather and Beth Pipe @CumbrianRambler, who between them have over 37,000 followers. 

Their aim is to reverse some of the damage done to local Cumbrian businesses by the recent storms and flooding. #They’re pouring their collective Twitter expertise into @NotJustLakes – an account created and managed to promote and support all local Cumbrian businesses. 

Any local businesses including #NotJustLakes in their tweets are guaranteed a retweet.   Full article is available via this link on In Cumbria bulletin

Please don't foreget the chamber has a twitter and Facebook account with the idea they are customer facing accounts (i.e. shop, event, community group news and promotions) so please follow/like/repost/retweet and mention @CockermouthTown

Other twitter accounts out there that may be of use, if you're not already following include @CumbriaIsOpen  @LakesVisitor @TasteCumbria

Many thanks
