The Forest Hill Society has be running for 10 years. During this time we have helped save the swimming pool, campaigned to improve rail and bus services, and worked to improve the high street with plants, pianos, and even picnics. We set up a monthly market which was tremendously popular and led to a butcher and a deli becoming permanent features on the high street. And as a result there is now a weekly farmers market at the Horniman. We have done lots more besides and we are very proud of all our achievements over the last ten years.
We still have more ambition for improving Forest Hill and this year we are working with other groups in a bid to manage Forest Hill Library. More than 60 of our members have already volunteered to give up their time to keep it open - whether our bid is successful or not.
The Forest Hill Society is completely separate from this forum (or any other), but we share the aim of getting people to engage with others who have an interest in the local area, and hopefully we can make Forest Hill an even better place to live.
As a member you will:
- Meet others who are passionate about Forest Hill
- Receive a Quarterly newsletter and regular updates on news and events by email
- Have the opportunity to make real improvements to our community
Joining the Forest Hill Society is cheap (£5 per year). There are four ways to pay; by standing order, by cheque, by credit or debit card or by PayPal.
We would encourage you to use a Standing Order as it means you don’t have to worry about renewing on time, since your bank will sort it all out for you. It’s also more convenient for us and marginally cheaper in the long run. However, we realise that many people prefer to deal online, so we have added PayPal (and you can choose to pay a bit extra to cover the charges).
