Community facebook groups


#1

my mate just sent me some extracts from his local community facebook group

are you a member of your local community’s group?


#2

No but the local for sale group has been a goldmine for the Terrible things… thread.


#3

No. I don’t even know if there is one!

@plasticniki did the ice cream wars of Forest Hill (?) ever resolve themselves?

I’m on 2

1 just for my Street , pretty quiet

1 for the Hanover area of Brighton (which I live just outside) - it’s handy for the occasional thing (got a bargain dishwasher from it for example) but is notoriously batshit. I’ve shared a couple of things from there already on the terrible things thread. It’s mainly just people asking dull questions that they could easily google though


#5

aye i’ve a vague memory of you posting a giant chewbacca made out of wood or something?


#6

Sure am!


#7

Today alone.

That wasn’t local unfortunately.

I’ve had a peep at the community group and it looks like I’m missing out on some serious chat.


#9

if you think that’s dull…


#10

I am indeed. Often a great source of beeve-based amusement and stuff like this

Top comment on the second one “enough is enough lets catch these little shits :rage:


#11

yeah. i got told off for ripping on people before on here :frowning:


#12

“it’s alan!” has done me


#13

this, by miles, is my favourite post from the eltham group


#14


#15

Way too many buy sell swap groups. We just need the one.
The best group is a grime group and some lady has joined and shared the page for their crocheting group :heart_eyes:


#16

the smaller than horses bit makes me lose it every single time i got back to it. i love it so much.


#17

Yep, one for Catford / Lewisham and another for Penge. They are both pretty bad. The latter has quite a few racist people spouting bollocks which I repeatedly flag and challenge.


#18

eltham has a lot of people telling anyone asking (which is in fact no one) that the stephen lawrence murder WASN’T RACIALLY MOTIVATED ACTUALLY.


#19

after nearly 5 years only just found out last week my place of work has a for sale page on the intranet. Can only imagine the bargains I have missed out on


#20

I’m in one and it was handy for recommending tradespeople but muted it now as it’s 90% mums looking for ballet/dance/gymnastics classes.
