Postlip Hall community
The spirit of Postlip is hard to pin down, but in many ways that is our strength. We are a diverse collection of individuals who have chosen to live here for many reasons. We enjoy a wide range of communal comings together but also enjoy our privacy. We are not bound by one vision but share a core set of values, which we try our best to follow and help each other to do the same.
What is important to us
To value our friendships and extended family environment, creating a sense of belonging.
To support our children and adults to grow and develop.
To cooperate actively through tolerance, generosity and sharing.
To make most big decisions by consensus - while typically a slow process, we think that consensus is often the best for maintaining cooperation and community.
To live together harmoniously and resolve conflict with generosity.
To encourage everyone to participate, even when the situation is uncomfortable for them.
To embrace the smallness of our community that enables us to welcome contributions from everyone.
To respect one another’s differences and personal privacy.
To welcome diversity and strive to create an inclusive community.
To take care of our buildings and grounds, leaving Postlip a better place for those who follow.
To care for our animals, gardens, and estate.
To share knowledge, skills and resources with each other and the larger community.
To have fun working, playing and living together; knowing that as individuals, our hard work is enabled by the fact that there is always someone to “lift the other end”.
