In these days of social media we decided we would launch our Facebook page before we opened to let everyone know who was going to be filling the space between the Lord Nelson and the barber on Emscote Road. Embracing this allows us to keep you updated on our progress and keep in touch with you. It can also mean a good excuse to share a cute photo. When doesn’t a sweet puppy raise an smile? As we move on it also gives us an easy way to update you on on any disease outbreaks locally that can then be shared. For instance last year we had several local pet rabbits that sadly had to be euthanased due to myxomatosis. Facebook is an ideal platform to raise awareness, and for explaining that all rabbits can be at risk as it is spread by biting insects, and that they can be vaccinated against this horrible disease. It has also been useful sometimes to help reunite pets with their owners, though we would recommend microchipping as preferable!
We are new to tweeting but again we felt it was something we needed to explore to find its uses. This is a journey for us too. We have found there are many groups on there supporting the local community and the Warwick Rocks campaign. At present we are just finding our feet, but hopefully this will be a fun way to help us keep you up to date too, or give you a smile for the day.
