RESIDENTS have been asked to tweet about positive things that are happening in Chester.

Muir Group Housing has been busy ‘tweeting’ to its residents about everything from making it into the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Small Companies list to new ways of making rent payments by text and making getting in touch with the association easier.

But now the association wants more of its residents to let them know what positive things they’ve been up to.

It’s already going down well with residents who have signed up to follow the association with one resident tweeting ‘I’m Katie and I am doing African drums with Muir and Groundwork, its amazing’.

Bev Price, community engagement officer for Muir Group Housing, said: “Engaging with our residents is vital to us as a social landlord and we are always looking for new and exciting ways to keep our residents involved.

“Twitter is a great way for us to communicate to residents so they know what’s happening almost as soon as we do.

“But it is also a great way for residents to keep us up-to-date with the positive things which they are doing in their communities.”
