HICOM (Histon & Impington Community) is a village based charity whose principal objective is the general community wellbeing of residents of all ages in the villages of Histon and Impington. Formed in 1998, HICOM operates the village Minibus and employs the village Older Persons Coordinator and assistant and the Mental Wellbeing Champion who is working towards increasing awareness and understanding of mental wellbeing in the community.
The minibus is principally used in the week to take older residents to exercise activities, various clubs, shopping trips, attend doctors appointments and outings. At weekends and in the evenings the minibus is available for general use by village groups.
Recognising the need to improve our mental wellbeing, a new project is underway to make Histon and Impington a mental health friendly community with the appointment of a new part time Village Mental Wellbeing Champion.
