No hate speech or bullying

Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind isn't allowed, and degrading comments about things such as race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender or someone's identity will not be tolerated.


No promotions or business posts

Self-promotion, business, spam, political posts from candidates and irrelevant links aren't allowed. Anything for sale, must be advertised on our ‘buy it sell it Cowbit’ page and will be removed.

This includes any individual, group or company that makes a surplus of funds for the event being advertised. The only few exceptions would be community events with the church school, Parish Council, Village Hall. 

Events are allowed if in the interest of the village residents, only posted once and are not from a business, and near or in the parish of Cowbit. 

Members are allowed to ask for recommendations, which could be a business.  


Be kind and courteous

We're all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Let's treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required. While understanding everybody’s right to their own view, this must be done in an environment that is not deliberately being rude, racist or unkind.
