Did you know that I run several Facebook pages allowing people to showcase their businesses, charities and events throughout the year. My most popular pages are Wiltshire – What’s On? & Bath – What’s On?
Between them I have about 7,000 people and organisations who regularly post their news and my rules around the groups are very few.
With Easter holidays just gone, and half terms, the King’s Coronation and the summer holidays, it is always good to find events where either you, or your children, or you as a family can go along and enjoy yourselves.
So definitely check it out, Wiltshire – What’s On?:
And you’ll find Bath – What’s On? Here:
