We are really sorry to have had to cancel meetings and other Forum events but obviously we all need to play our part in slowing the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
We have, however, produced the latest Forum Focus and it should have been delivered to members’ homes by now or find the newsletter here. There are many issues that still need addressing, including campaigning for a better bus route to Chase Farm.

We urge everyone to follow government guidelines during these difficult times and we look forward to the time when we can meet again in person.
