Dafen Forum is a voluntary community group run by local residents for the benefit of people living in Dafen and the neighbourhood. Its aims are to work with the help of local people and organisations for the betterment of the area. Read more about our aims below.
We are probably best known for organising the annual Dafen Christmas Fair, an event which takes months of planning and hard work, but we also arrange smaller events, such as the popular Family Halloween Disco. We get involved with other projects too, such as putting up the village noticeboards, hanging flower baskets, litterpicks, and providing textiles recycling facilities (which also helps us raise much needed funds).
The purpose of this blog is to keep you up to date with our plans and activities for the future and to allow the people of Dafen a chance to play a bigger part in our efforts to make Dafen a better place to live, work and play.
We need your help! We need volunteers to make our events, projects and activities a success. We need help in raising funds to make positive changes. And most of all we need your support and encouragement. So keep up to date with what's happening through this blog and we hope you will get behind us.
