Welcome to the Forum Centre

The Forum is a bright and modern hub for co-located services used by community and business.

Take advantage of activities for leisure and a healthy lifestyle, use the library for book, music or film loans and access a range of supported computer provision. The adult education college offers part-time and full-time courses for employability or professional development and students with children can also take advantage of subsidised on-site childcare at the nursery, which has one hundred places for children from 3 months to 5 years.

The Forum health centre includes two medical practices along with a wide range of community health services and the pharmacy offers medicines, toiletries, prescriptions and health advice from qualified pharmacists. The concourse newsagent is a convenient stop for newspapers, magazines and confectionary while the Forum's own café serves refreshments, snacks and hot meals daily.
