Community programme – online poll

The Lakeside Hammers Community Programme (LHCP) has been invited to participate in a Thurrock wide ‘Collaboration Laboratory’  event organised by the Royal Opera House in September where the focus will be on how local businesses and companies can provide children and young people with more, and better, creative and cultural activities in the Thurrock area.

As the event will provide us with another opportunity to work with local senior public and business leaders, the club would really appreciate your feedback on our ‘Kids for a Quid’ promotion  and we’d especially like to know if it helps young people, and their families, to attend more of our meetings during July and August.

A very simple on-line survey is below and we hope this will provide an easy way for you to let us know how valuable ‘Kids for a Quid’ was for you and your family. Once you have submitted your view you are also invited to leave comments – just click the “comments” hyperlink once you have voted and following the instructions on the resulting web page.

We hope that by providing young people with opportunities to attend our meetings at an affordable price  that we are helping to contribute to the list of available things for the ‘kids’ to go and do. Are we right!? Thank you in advance for your help.

The LHCP have been helping a variety of fund raising efforts throughout the year and it’s always nice to get some recognition so we’d like to record our thanks to Donna Wright from the Sutton Community and Neighbourhood Watch Association for her letter thanking us for our support for their recent MacMillan Cancer fund raiser and also for the acknowledgements in the local media.

We’re here to help and this support will continue throughout the off-season so please contact Mark ( if you’d like the Hammers to help your good cause.
