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”
