Community Pages

It’s what’s happening…

Community is where I can share my innermost thoughts, bring out the depths of my own feelings, and know they will be understood.{a}

This is an index to our pages relating to community groups and activities

We encourage community organisations on St Helena to submit information for a FREE page on this site.

These pages are about community groups and activities on St Helena.

And the great news is that YOUR GROUP CAN FEATURE (the even better news is that it’s FREE).

This site delivers thousands of pages per day to people worldwide, so a page will help your group get noticed and may attract support from overseas.

Just contact us and tell us what your group does, how it can be contacted and attach a few photos. We’ll do the rest!

We reserve the right to refuse a page to any organisation or campaign which, in our opinion, is not acting in the best interests of the Island of St Helena.
