HUG History

The Helix User Group was set up towards the end of 1989 to provide support throughout the UK for users of what was then Double Helix. Later it became (for legal reasons) a limited company run by a small committee of Helix professionals, and gained members in several European countries. It offered three major benefits to its members:

But Helix sales in the UK were falling, for reasons we won't analyse here. The result, of course, was fewer new members joining HUG. In the end the membership fell to a level at which we couldn't support the creation and publication of the newsletter, and at the end of 1994 we reluctantly decided to fold the formal limited company and cease publication of Abacus.
