On Sat Feb 9th, 10.00-12.00, we are litter picking from Boots and McCalls along the Blandford Road towards the Hamworthy Dental Practice.
We are also hoping to do a spot of gardening and get the planters outside Boots/McCalls back into some kind of order.
Due to the proximity to a big road, this pick is not recommended for smaller children. But older children with responsible adults are welcome.
Come and make a difference to your local area!

It's time to make your mark on the park!
The fence around the paddling pool needs painting so it's nice and smart.
With 5 different colours to choose from, you can come and paint a section of fence and admire it for decades to come!
FOHP Wednesday volunteers have been cleaning the fence, ready for painting.
Supervised children very welcome!
Bring old clothes that you don't mind getting splashed in paint.

You may remember that last year, litter was a big problem in the park over the summer months. And you’ll have seen it for yourself when using the park. What’s the problem? Last year, there was an increase in park use due to the warm weather, along with the Council’s policy of removing some bins …
Every summer you have the same problem. You just don’t know what events are happening in the park and when. You’d like to go, but you always miss them. Not this summer! Get all the Hamworthy Park events info in one place. Now, you can plan for the summer and make sure you don’t miss …
“I hope that the new park will be of benefit for all time to the people and particularly the children of Hamworthy”
