GROUP GUIDELINES (as of March 2012)

Sincere thanks to those of you who have taken the time to offer myself (Colin Murray) and the admin team helpful and practical advice on how to administrate this page fairly and in a way that safeguards and supports us all as we move forward with this exciting community project.

We are a group in its infancy and, as such, we are looking to implement simple but necessary guidelines that foster trust and a sense of general well being. These initial group regulations may be tweaked and modified as the group grows and develops. Thank you all for the way you have come together as a responsible and accepting online group with a genuine passion for our close community, its unique history of extraordinary characters, and it’s wonderful treasure of local landmarks.

The following are some regulations we expect all who join this group to respect.
