Blake Morgan Housing Day 2016

Posted on
On Monday 19 September Blake Morgan's Social Housing Team were the proud hosts of the first ever Housing Day media interview room.

Housing Day is a national social media celebration event raising awareness of the incredible good work that the housing sector does day in day out and the positive impact it has on people's daily lives.

The day itself involved over seventeen thousand tweets, (averaging 719.5 tweets per hour) with a reach of over 7.6 million people. At one point it was the number one twitter trend in the United Kingdom. 

Supporting the day Blake Morgan invited Housing Associations and their tenants to be interviewed and recorded at its Southampton Office about why social housing matters to them.

Below are a selection of the day's interviews with special thanks to both First Wessex, the Radian Group and the Aster Group for their support.
