About Us

Manly Community Forum

We are locals who love Manly and care deeply about our local community. We are entirely volunteer based and non-partisan.
Our monthly meetings are on the third monday of every month. Due to current restrictions, these are being held online. Come to our montly meetings and join in the discussion, raise an issue, inspire others, or simply get to know your neighbours - everyone's welcome.
We produce a montly printed newsletter which is delivered to 4000 local addresses. A digital version is produced for our subscribers.
The Manly Community Forum was established in July 2016 after the establishment of the Northern Beaches Council. It is based on the 'precincts' concept, bringing together in one Forum the 'precincts' formerly referred to as the Corso, Little Manly and Fairy Bower.
We welcome any voluneers who would like to contribute, through writing for our monthly newsletter, help with managing our website, delivering the printed newspaper or any other help you think you can offer. Please get in contact with us.
