Hamworthy's very own on-line community hubbub facility.
The website is in its embryonic stage and it will develop into a comprehensive website site packed with the latest news from around the area, plus links to local organisations as well as information on local schools, clubs, churches, business...and much more.
- In order to resolve the problem of industrial workers parking all day long in Hamworthy Park, Councillors at the the Hamworthy East and West and Poole Old Town Area Committee (held on 10 June 2009) gave approval to a proposal to install a lockable bollard at the entrance to Hamworthy Park's car park from 9.00pm until 10.00am. A six month trial period came into force on 1st September, 2009. Although early morning visitors to the park now have to use either Branksea Avenue or Lulworth Avenue to park their cars, at least genuine park users are able to access the carpark throughout the rest of the day. This was not the case previously. This matter is due to be reviewed at the Hamworthy East and West and Poole Old Town Area Committee which is due to be held on Wednesday 17th March 2010 in Carter Community School
- Hamworthy's new Library was officially opened on Saturday 6th March 2010 by the Mayor of Poole. Wallace and Grommit were in attendance throughout the day. It was a fun day - a really fantastic occasion. There was so much to see and do. Loads of people attended and the Library's 'Book Bites Cafe' did a roaring trade!
Hamworthy's new Library
The new Library's 'Book Bites Cafe' is being run by volunteers from the local community. There is already a willing band of enthusiastic helpers, but many hands make light work. So - more volunteers would be very very welcome. Perhaps you might like to 'lend a hand'? Why not call into the Library and put your name forward.
- Saturday (in the new Library) also saw the launch of a competition to design an Emblem and Badge for Hamworthy. This is being organised by Peter England. All school pupils and residents of Hamworthy are invited to submit an idea for consideration. Proposed 'Emblems' should be designed on A4 paper with name, age (if under 16) and postcode on reverse. Entries to be handed in by 10th June to: Peter England c/o Hamworthy Community Library where they will be available to view until the end of August. A judging panel will select the entries that, in their opinion, best portray Hamworthy. The result will be announced in September 2010 and the final selection put on display.
- The Hamside Residents' Associations Annual General Meeting will take place in the new Library on Tuesday 30th March 2010 commencing at 7.00pm. All Hamworthy residents are very welcome to attend.
