SINCE HU12 ONLINE went officially live on 4th October 2011, it has become the local web-place to discuss the more ‘controversial’ issues affecting the local area and the surrounding villages.
An article about the teachers suspended from South Holderness for allegedly making inappropriate Facebook comments, and the social media campaign waged in their defence, has received much attention and has been picked up by other media organisations. See: Supporters wage social media campaign.
The publication of allowances paid to East Riding Councillors’ has sparked renewed interest on that subject both in terms of visits to the website, but also debate on our Facebook Page. See: Should Councillors get paid?
And today we summarise the debate on the Boundary Changes as a ‘taster’ to some of the issues that may be discussed at the Public Hearings taking place next week. See: Should SW Holderness be included in the East Hull constituency?
In addition, visits to the What’s On? page has increased as readers discover that the page is for the wider area and not just Hedon. This vindicates the decision to host that page on HU12 Online.
