The Highams Park Forum is a group of volunteer residents and businesses from Highams Park (in the London Borough of Waltham Forest) who meet regularly to discuss matters affecting their area, with a view to maintaining and improving the area for the benefit of all residents. The area has some unique characteristics which the Forum wish to promote, preserve, and encourage best use of.
