We aim to serve the interests of the community and local area by helping to provide recreational and leisure time activities, conserving and improving the
environment, enabling social events, and creating opportunities for the gaining of knowledge and skills and improving the quality of life.
The organisation is run by a board of trustees, which oversees a multitude of projects run by individual groups.
By merging HAA & HCP we have
brought together the many and varied activities the separate organisations, including: the Village Market, the Star Cinema, the Rail Group, Hassocks Community Cycle Hire, involvement in Operation Watershed, Natural Flood Mitigation and the maintenance of the Herring Stream.
Check out Hassocks Community Cycle Hire on the tab above for great value bike hire in the South Downs! They do bike servicing too.

HASSOCKS TO CLAPHAM JUNCTION
Catherine Cassidy writes:
Efforts over the last year have at last resulted in the reinstatement of a direct Hassocks to Clapham Junction peak service.
If you're not a commuter to Clapham Junction this will probably have passed you by, but since it was confirmed this time last year that despite representations from the Rail Group and local commuters as part of the May 2018 timetable consultation, the direct Hassocks to/from Clapham Junction peak time services were being removed in May 2018 I have been in regular communication with the timetable managers and other GTR officers to reinstate this service and along with commuters also asked for Nick Herbert's assistance.
There's more to do as this is only one morning service at 07.10 and an evening service from CJ at 17.32 and we hope that there will be the possibility of introducing further peak time direct CJ trains in the near future. The initial idea, once the Dept for Transport at last accepted in September 2018 that not having a direct service had to be re-considered, was for a CJ stop to be put on the Gatwick Express service but, as with previous attempts to alter the GEX stopping pattern, this was met with great resistance by the Airport Authority so the stop is on a Southern train.
