HOLBEACH PARISH COUNCIL: Meetings to be recorded and uploaded on social media from January, members decide
Parish councillors are to go head-to-head with The One Show, Emmerdale and Coronation Street from January 2019.
Holbeach council tax payers and families will soon be able to catch up with decisions made about the town when meetings are recorded and uploaded onto social media.
Members hope that delayed broadcasts of their meetings, held on the second Monday of each month, will encourage more people to attend.
Coun Kelly Wilson said: “We’re all aware that a member of the public records our meetings and this puts us at potential risk because things could be edited and put out to the public.
“We also have to move with the times so if we do record meetings, we’ll have factual evidence of what was discussed and people could then see what goes on.
“It could also lead to more members of the public attending.”

Meanwhile, a ban on politically-related advertising and posters on parish council notice boards has been upheld in line with its status as a non-party political organisation.
In backing the move, Coun Arthur Male said: “We’re all independent and I don’t think we’d want to align ourselves with any political party.
“I think we would be better thought of for not doing so.”
