I have posted about the Hither Green Discussion Forum several times in the past. Although it has not yet revolutionised the experience of community in the area where I live, it has helped me recognise a few more locals and has alerted me to a number of things going on around here that I wouldn’t have picked up from the local papers.
It is also good to see some of the local councillors using the site as an opportunity to inform and listen to people who live in their wards. So far, the Liberal Democrats are well ahead in these stakes and representatives of the other parties have got a lot of catching up to do!
