Soham Town Forum

About Soham Town Forum

Soham Town Forum was set up in June 1998 and is still going strong. The idea was to give Soham residents an opportunity to learn about and discuss a whole range of issues and subjects involving the town and it’s community.

Anthony Woodward is the Chairman of Soham Town Forum

Other officers are:

  • Maura Castling – Chairman of Trustees
  • Elizabeth Johnston – Vice Chairman
  • Charles Warner – Secretary
  • Michaela Parfitt – Treasurer

A representative of Soham Town Council attends every meeting, as do other Councillors. The Forum is set up as an open meeting, and is a regular opportunity for any Soham resident to come along and discuss local matters. It’s a real opportunity to make contact with others and get any views across to hopefully make a difference.

Meetings are held approximately every six weeks, in Hall 1 of the Pavilion, from 7.30pm on a Thursday. All are very welcome to attend.

The Forum also maintains an ‘any other business’ heading on the agenda, which allows for new items and issues to be raised by anyone present.

If you would like an item on the agenda, for future discussion, please contact us

Police (local) – dial 101 (in an emergency always dial 999).
