Facebook Group Rules

Blue Heart Community Groups are Facebook groups targeted at bringing local community members together. Our philosophy is built around strengthening communities through constructive discussions and providing tools to support local businesses. Blue Heart Communities Groups are represented through “I Love” suburban groups that are visually associated through the Blue Heart Logo

Our team of administrators and moderators facilitate the Blue Heart Community Groups. Every member and post is screened however we are not always aware when a member has been abusive or offensive and therefore request that you report any suspicious content to the administrators, moderators or contact us here. We invite the community to get involved and please feel free to contact us with any feedback.

The objective and general outline of the group is the below:
