Rationale, purpose and activities

Rationale and purpose
 
Being active within our community helps all of us to have a more interesting life, develop friendships, stay healthy and feel happier. Communities thrive when people are better connected and support systems are in place. That is the rationale for the St Hilary Forum.

The purpose of the Forum is to ensure that everyone who lives in our community:

  •  is well connected and has a voice
  •  can get involved in activities that support the community
