Welcome to The Friends’ website

We are delighted to welcome you to The Friends of Hampton Wick Library website.

The Hampton Wick Association has set up the Friends of Hampton Wick Library to make sure that people in the Wick are aware of the Library and vote with their feet by using it. While there is no immediate threat of closure, we must make sure that our Library isn’t picked upon just because it’s small.

Help us end lunchtime closing at the Library!

The Friends and the HWA are submitting a bid to the council’s Community Fund. If we are successful, we’ll be able to improve the facilities shared between the Library and the Village Hall (Bullen Hall).

Perhaps most importantly, the kitchen will be enlarged and upgraded. There will be space for the Librarians to eat lunch. We’ll organise a rota of volunteers to provide cover and so the Library will be able to stay open at lunchtimes.

Please help us by emailing your support for lunchtime opening of the Library to info@friendshwlibrary.org.uk – today!

More information about the bid is on the HWA’s website here.
