Without doubt the saddest loss of 2009 was the death of Hamp Community Associations Lynne Macriner-Manley who had worked so hard for the people of Hamp from her days as Family Centre manager to her final role as Manager of the Information and Advice centre where she was the leading light in preparing funding bids and community initiatives for the HCA.

Hamp District Councillor Brian Smedley says "2010 will be the year we need to find a new person to take on these important roles and at the same time we need to revitalise the Hamp Community Association to make sure its inclusive and reflects the current needs on the estate. I have launched a Hamp Community Audit which will be presented at a Hamp Public Forum meeting to be held at Re-Creation once complete. The aim is to see what we have, what we need and how we achieve it. There are lots of of people that are active on the estate now whether it be the Hamp Action Group-campaigning for long overdue facilities for Mansfield park, or Rhode Lsne Wanderers -who clearly need a home on Hamp or the BSF initiative which will see millions spent on school and community projects on the estate -we need to get everyone on board now!"
