I decided to opt to create a dedicated Facebook page under the name of the High Sheriff of South Yorkshire to record some of my engagements during my year of office rather than using the facility of a blog on the High Sheriffs’ Association website. Social media is such a huge part of everyday life that I felt it gave better potential to reach more people than simply using the HSA website. This has proven very successful.  I can monitor the number of post reads and the site is set up so that it may be used by my successors.
