Things I have learned today: there's a Forest Hill FB page. Well hidden, though...

Anybody looking for it, search under 'fab forest hill' it is a good page, useful for selling stuff and finding bargains.

Hmm, 99% spammy ads and one whinge about dog poo. I think I'll pass. Thumbdown

Greensleeves, you or others may not know that there's also the Forest Hill Society Facebook page, which is worth 'liking'.

Thanks, but I've found that local social meejah generally prefers spin and exclamation marks to realism.

I agree that the Forest Hill Soc page is well worth a follow. No exclamation marks in sight, and not selling anything. Information about what they are doing and news-worthy local items, but no events promotion or other nonsense.

Thanks for the positive feedback.

The Forest Hill Society page is a mix of local news, local events, and information about local businesses. There is no paid advertising but I do share interesting posts from local businesses that seem particularly interesting and relevant. I'm keen to encourage new businesses but the most important thing is to keep it connected with Forest Hill, if not, it has no place on the page.

As for use of exclamation marks, it has happened. I would particularly point out my favourite headline wot I wrote: "Turnip, tune in, veg out!" The perfect way to describe a day of musical vegetables at the Horniman. Sadly I sometimes think I'm the only person who appreciates my genius/madness.

If you do see posts that are of interest to you please share them or like them, or even better - comment on them, so that others locally see them. At present we still have less likes (1,343) than Lewisham Council (2,300) or Brockley Central (3,200). It would be good to reach new people who can appreciate the good things that happen in Forest Hill (and the occasional bank robberies).
