We (the Hampton Wick Association) believe Hampton Wick local branch library does need befriending.

However, we feel Hampton Wick is too small to support an entirely separate group just for this purpose. The time and effort involved in holding separate regular meetings, electing officers, opening and running a bank account, holding AGMs, creating an acceptable constitution are simply too great for such a small community.

However we intend to formalise our support of the Library and therefore achieve similar objectives without duplication of overheads.

How will we go about this?

1. The HWA will remain totally independent of library services or LBRuT but will happily consult and liaise and generally share information.

2. A ‘Library update’ will be added to the Agenda of the HWA committee meetings and to the AGM agenda as a standing item.

3. We will use the existing mechanisms of the HWA (e.g. bank account, meeting dates and places, constitution, elected offers, AGM etc). Any funds raised for Library projects will be ring-fenced in the HWA accounts and reported separately at the AGM.

4. We will recognise a representative of the HWA committee to be lead ‘Friend’ and to attend networking functions as necessary.

We will review the above from time to time as necessary.
