Streetlife has just launched across Aberdeenshire, and everyone – residents, groups, local government representatives and businesses – is invited to share their knowledge, discuss the local issues they care about, and help build a stronger, better connected community.
The local social network, has a simple aim: to help people make the most of where they live by connecting with their neighbours.
The website provides a free and easy place to share local news, views, recommendations and resources, enabling people with busy routines or reduced mobility to keep in touch with their community.
Conversations started on Streetlife have helped unite lost pets with owners, expose doorstep scammers, save threatened public services and recall local history.
The site is also encouraging real-world friendships, with neighbours sharing gardening equipment, IT advice and dentist recommendations, organising craft groups, street parties and book clubs.
Fraserburgh Independent Councillor Ian Tait says he thinks the new website is a very good idea.
“I think it is a very good initiative that deserves support because I think it would be good to get the community working together - you can get more done that way for the benefit of my constituents.”
