We teamed up with Twin Sails Infants School for their “Love Where You Live Week”.

The children learned all about Hamworthy and about the Park, we attended their assembly and gave a little bit of history about the pool.

During the week the children made vases and crafts to sell, then the sold them at a sale in the playground on Friday and raised an incredible £220 for the paddling pool fund.

All the children also made these beautiful splashes that say why they love the pool and what a difference it makes to their lives and their summer holidays.

We used these images to support our grant applications to explain why the paddling pool is really important to our community.

You can still donate to the paddling pool find online. To date we have raised obver £30k from our community to support a refurbishment.
