The Forum met hundreds of local residents at the South End Green Festival on 29 June 2014 and at the Hampstead Summer Festival's Big Fair on 6 July. Our volunteers gathered many opinions on local issues, and on the kind of neighbourhood that local people would like to see in the future. Janine Griffis, Forum chair, was quoted in the Ham & High as saying: “It was incredibly busy and everyone thought it was the best Big Fair ever. The organisers did a fantastic job.” Thanks to these and other engagements, the Forum now has more than 600 members, and the list is growing. Do join us and help to build a vision of the future.
