Are you a local community group or charity and wish to benefit from sharing experiences and ideas with other local groups?
The Hailsham Community Forum is looking to expand its membership and is open to all community groups, associations and charities in the area, to help build a better communication network and create a louder voice between them and other voluntary and statutory groups.
The long term benefits of joining the Forum could be cost savings to your group, for instance more leverage with ordering leaflets, printing costs, sharing resources and more. Several groups have already benefited from the forum by taking stalls on the Hailsham Street Market.
The forum, which meets on a regular basis, currently consists of around 30 community organisations including Hailsham Active, Hailsham Farmers’ Market, Hailsham Harriers, Computers For Charities, Hailsham Bonfire Society, Hailsham Lions, Hailsham Choral Society and the Now! Charity.
“The Hailsham Community Forum has grown since its launch with a number of groups wishing to become a member,” said Deputy Town Clerk and Business Enterprise Manager Mickey Caira.
“We are looking for additional members who can include local community groups, voluntary organisations, charities, parent/teacher groups and residents’ associations among others to share information on developments of interest including new funding opportunities, in addition to enabling partnership working with other organisations.”
The next forum meeting will take place at 6.30pm on Wednesday 7th December at the Hailsham Parish Church lounge. Meetings are also scheduled for Tuesday 10th January, Thursday 9th February and Wednesday 8th March 2017.
