A networking group for anybody connected with Strathaven (Scotland) run by Intlife Communities.

The Group is for discussing matters of importance about the town, offer practical support, discuss ideas of how to improve the town for residents, people who work here and visitors, make public announcements and encourage 'social health' in general. Please refrain from using it in any other way and from giving out false information - even as a joke.

Please keep it all positive - FOR INSTANCE, if you don't like a local business, don't post a negative comment, instead, leave a positive one for a business you like. (This is not a rating site)

If you really need to say anything negative (like warning someone about an experience with a dishonest trader, or something illegal for instance), please contact the appropriate authorities or use your personal account's private message facility. Remember that you will still be liable to the same slander and defamation laws outside Facebook if what you say is not true and cannot be backed up with facts.

Because of the diversity of our community, it's possible that something could be disagreeable or disturbing to you without meeting the criteria for being removed or blocked. For this reason, Facebook also offer personal controls over what you see, such as the ability to hide or quietly cut ties with people, Pages, or applications that offend you.

Please note that we enforce Facebook rules at all times to the best of our capabilities to protect the integrity of the Group. For more info, visit

Remember that you have the choice to delete your own posts for whatever reason.

Keep your post to the subject of the thread otherwise it may need to be moved or deleted. If you give your opinion on any subject without judging other people's opinion, it will help ('judging' is not the same as 'disagreeing').

If your comment does not add and contribute to a thread discussion, it might be deleted.

Please note that, if you're a business, you need to be within the Strathaven Business Association catchment area (ML10 post code area and Stonehouse). The only exception is if the service being provided doesn't exist within the Business Association catchment area.

Advertising in the Strathaven Group is a concession.

There is a limit of one advert/offer per day per member. Businesses outside Business Association area will not be allowed to become members.

Please do not use our 'Files' facility for sales, courses and so on. This is reserved for the Group's admins/moderators. If you'd like a file to be uploaded, please talk to one of the admins.

The SALE OF ANIMALS (even giving) is not allowed - for full details please consult the 'House Rules'.
