A social media surgery is a pretty informal gathering of people who want to learn how to use the web to communicate campaign or collaborate. They are deliberately relaxed. You will get to sit alongside someone who understands good ways to use the internet and they’ll
show you useful free tools. If you like what you see they can also help you set up your blog, or Facebook page or Twitter account. Most social media surgeries have an event every few weeks, so you can keep coming back for help should you need to.

Eden (Cumbria) Social Media Surgery
Thu 11 November 2010 5:00pm
at Eden Rural Foyer – Penrith Eden Old London
Road, Penrith, Cumbria

Local voluntary and community sector groups are invited to this free social media advice session. You’ll get practical hands-on advice for
putting social technology into action for your cause, to help you reach a wider audience and promote the good work you do.

Whether it’s getting started sharing your group’s stories and aims through blogging, forming a community around a Facebook group, or
reaching out and engaging new supporters and service users through Twitter, our volunteers will be on-hand with suggestions on how to
effectively use social media to promote an important cause.

You will have the opportunity find out about ICT training offered at the Eden Rural Foyer.

This free event is for not-for-profit organisations and groups. Places are limited, so booking is essential. If you’d like to volunteer, you can
register your support here too.
