Shire of Chittering on Social Media

The Shire of Chittering is broadening its communication and community engagement options by developing a presence on social media.

Facebook is a free-access social networking website that is privately owned and operated.  Users can join networks organised by hometown, workplace, school and / or region to connect and interact with other people.  Users can also add friends and send them messages, and update their personal profiles and / or status to notify friends about themselves.

We are committed to informing and engaging our community.  Our Facebook page supplements the information we publish in Chatter@Chittering, on our website, and through our email newsletters.

We can;

  • remind you of important events.
  • alert you to late-breaking news.
  • link you to interesting information about Chittering published by other people.
  • better communicate with those using mobile devices.

The Shire of Chittering is aware of the ever-changing nature of internet communications and our use of Facebook will be influenced by community participation and responses.
