Biggest & best independent local community forum, directory, marketplace, events
It has been possible from day one to create a public or private group on this website and I'm going to attempt to bring that localisation we love on here so much even smaller. What I'm going to launch is a road by road, street by street, avenue by avenue, close by close etc group system and I'm looking for an individual from each road to run on their own or with neighbours their own street/road etc group.
Marvelous for arranging street parties, neighbourhood watch, just even getting to know your neighbours a little better I hope you all buy into this and come forward. I'll add more details as we go along and help those first few through the door.
I think you should keep them private groups and invite in known neighbours and don't state which number you live in etc unless you know everyone on your group's list, but you can do quite a lot in the group pages from setting up separate discussions, adding text, pics and videos, comments and even bringing in feeds from outside sources.
I've been contacted by residents looking for this type of opportunity and I'm thrilled to help. If you are setting up a Diamond Jubilee or Olympics street party then why not use the site and your own group as a hub to message each other or all members of the group in one go and be able to arrange everything much easier.
I of course am quite happy to help and give guidance.
So what do people think?
I've set up Clock House Road as the first, but why not message me or add your road and street etc here and let's get even more neighbourly online!
Fantastic! Thanks Jon will make communication amongst neighbours much easier!
Great to see you've set one up for Dunbar Avenue Residents let's hope we get some more, already via Twitter we've got some people joining the site for this
Great idea! Just moved into Shirley Crescent http://www.beckenhamtown.us/group/shirley-crescent
I'm right between you both in Balmoral Avenue!
Great to see we have another new neighbourhood road added - http://www.beckenhamtown.us/group/brackley-road-neighbours
Actually I quite like the phrase 'Neighbourhood Road' a scheme that might just take off I think
Created tonight I see Abbots Way now has its own group - great to see another road create a group here for itself. I wonder who will be next?
Another new local road have added a private group Blakeney Avenue Neighbours If you live on that road please ask to join
New Ravenscroft Road Neighbours Group started for all those who live on the road to join http://www.beckenhamtown.us/group/ravenscroft-road-neighbours
I wonder which road will be next - that's 8 now
Great to see another local road group has been created, this time for Blandford Road Residents to all join and share news, issues, info and events
Just seen this, and set up Durban Road residents to share neighbourhood news, info and plan events
It's verging on Autumn so why not start up a private road group on here and invite neighbours to it so you can share your road/street/avenue/close etc info, issues, events, snow friends, book clubs, or whatever you have. It's a great way to get to know your neighbours. If your road doesn't have a group already then you can set one up for free. Make it private, then you can accept into it only your real neighbours and keep things to yourselves as much as you like.
