Useful Facebook Groups for Penistone

Whether you're looking to move into Penistone or you live here already and you would like to know more about what's going on in Penistone, here's a useful list of Facebook groups for you to join.

Penistone For Sale Groups on Facebook

"WE ARE PENISTONE (and locality); SELL, BUY & LOCAL INFORMATION." This group has the biggest number of members out of the buy and sell Facebook groups in Penistone (6,000 members as of 28/12/21) and is most probably the most heavily moderated. This means it's kept up to date and you're less likely to come across spam posts and scam artists.

"Penistone Buy and Sell." Is a more relaxed buy and sell Facebook group in Penistone. This group has 5,500 members (as of 28/12/21) and is less moderated meaning there are more business advertisement posts but rules and regulations dictated by the administrators of the group require you to jump through less hoops to list your items for sale than the one above.

"Items for Free in Penistone and Surrounding Areas" does exactly what it says on the tin! Use the group to post anything you're wanting to give away for free and save it from ending up in a landfill OR keep an eye out for some great opportunities from generous residents of Penistone and surrounding areas!

Sports Groups

"Penistone Footpath Runners." Penistone is a superb location to live in if you're an avid runner. Quiet country lanes and a labyrinth of public pathways traversing through farmland and woodland make for superb cross-country running. There are also several locations in surrounding areas perfect for fell running. This group is full of active members who answer any questions you may have about upcoming events and routes very quickly and thoroughly. Members post almost daily inviting others out on runs and members seem to have a full range of expertise from amateur to well-seasoned!

Community Action Groups

"Penistone Community Forum" is probably "THE" Facebook Group to join. With over 6,000 members, Penistone Community Forum's members are very friendly and will go out of their way to help others requesting information and help.

"Penistone and Surrounding Areas Community Page" has half of the number of members as above but still has a loyal following but tends to also have more members sharing their business advertisements.
