FWC launches video panel

Published Monday, 3rd August 2015, 9:50AM
Article by Peter Butler

A new video library is now live on Fleurieu West Connect featuring short positive videos about the local area. This new feature comes as the website celebrates just over twelve months of operation.
“We began developing a video library to showcase the region about eight months ago” said web developer Rob Butler “The internet is such a great medium for promoting everything about the local area from its natural beauty to its community achievements.”
The videos, originally released via Youtube and Facebook, have generated considerable local interest, particularly those on sport & recreation activities. Twelve local videos have been released to date and are now available for viewing on the website. More are expected over the coming months.
The videos complement the community pages, news, events and other information on the site. Local community groups and businesses can register, create a page and promote their activities for free according to Mr Butler.
Go to //fleurieuwestconnect.com.au/v/ to view the videos.
