The forum has been running since 2013 when the first Hub Magazine was created - it aims to bring everyone together to share what they've been doing and what they are planning. It is an opportunity to share and collaborate and help each other promote what is going on. They are held roughly quarterly and normally occur in the week before the deadline for the Hub Magazine and are held in person but you can also join online. In 2022 we created the Town Event which is an annual in person forum showcasing what is going on in the town. Upcoming dates are:
