Hightlights included:

The Old Saw Mill Project – Stewart Halliday.


Stewart took us through a very interesting and exciting presentation on the development of the OSM.


A full copy of his presentation will be sent out to all Senior Forum members. MS to action.


The OSM is developing into an excellent community hub and located in the town centre compliments the current “hubs” at New Life Church, Bromley Farm and the nearly refurbished St John’s Community Centre.


The OSM is quickly building a wide range of activities, events and regular café customers. They have plans for further development in Health & Wellbeing, Social Isolation and Seniors support.


They are building a bank of volunteers with a wide range of skills.


Next meeting to be held at OSM (Tuesday 14.2.17) MS to make sure that the other hubs are invited ( NLC/BF and StJ)
