Are you a local based 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 monthly, currently consists of over 20 community organisations including:
Deputy Town Clerk and Business Enterprise Manager Mickey Caira said: “The Hailsham Community Forum has grown since its launch in April last year with a number of groups wishing to become a member.”
“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 6pm on Thursday 14th January at the Hailsham Parish Church lounge. If you are interested in attending contact Michelle Hagger at Hailsham Town Council on 01323 841702 or by email.
