Social Media - "Barry Boosters"!!

Let's get all those on social media who are promoting Barry, Barry Island, and various centres and associations in Barry, to a meeting to discuss how we can work together to create an even bigger, joined up, social media buzz for Barry.

I cam across an old book about Barry, and there were a group of people in the '40's who became known as the "Barry Boosters"!!

Let's create a "Barry Boosters" social media group. One face to face meeting, then onwards let's use the media.

Barry Boosters - great find there - where did they meet, Paul?

Perhaps following in their footsteps (or more accurately their seats in the pub??) might be a nice way to recreate something of the spiriti of their time... (Providing of course the place still exists - I'm less of a fan of standing in the veg aisle of Tesco, Barry Road tbh)

Set a date & time - and boost.....

 - could the idea of 'Barry Boosters' be incorporated into the #BarryBusinessHour idea - posted on this site - or do ou see it having a different role?

What does seem to be emerging in this thread and in the #BarryBusinessHour thread is a clear appetite for making something happen and coming together as a community to create a bigger impact.

What about running a 'thunderclap' campaign? We push for a date to encourage a 'trip to barry island'  and get all social media types in Barry to join in. We need a good campaign name and aim. Aim, something like, visit Barry make a sandcastle. A good thunderclap name is eluding me at the moment. Coffee needed. More thoughts later.
