Friends of Hastings Neighbourhood Services (HNS) F.O.H.N.S. CLUB
You can become a friend of Hastings Neighbourhood Services and enjoy membership privileges.
"Friends of HNS" started from an idea to reward our frequent and loyal visitors coming to our centres. These are the people who want to engage with us and who enjoy being part of our shared community.
"Why would you want to do this?" you might ask "Why wouldn't you want to do this" we say
Let us explain: When we are offering new programmes and services or there are changes and different opportunities to existing services, we want you to be the first to know. We quite often hear that people didn't know about changes or offers and they would have liked to participate. By listening to your feedback our solution is to create an exclusive Friends of HNS family (FOHNS). We will be able to stay contact with you and keep all of our members in the loop with what is on!
