Media & Messaging

Why We Exist

To communicate with the outside world what’s going on in XR Totnes and Area and to share our action, purpose and vision with the broadest possible audience. 

What We Do

We write and distribute press releases, engage with journalists and broadcasters, publish information on social media channels and manage the local group website.

We assess our effectiveness by tracking

  • Social media: likes, comments, shares, engagement, followers. 
  • Press: number, size and angle of articles online and in print. 
  • Radio and TV: number and success of appearances.
  • Website: news items, events, viewers, page views, feedback
