About us

We support all and any members of our local community, whether they need a little bit of extra help with shopping or collecting prescriptions, or if they are feeling lonely and disconnected, and many other things! We also arrange events, particularly our Christmas events where we seek to support the community in need and spread joy. And most recently we have opened our Community Larder, Food, Pet Food and Hygiene Bank, and more! We are Ferndown Community Support CIC, a not for profit organisation. Originally started in 2019, our aims are many, and our mission is to keep all our residents as healthy, connected, safe and comforted as possible.  We have a great bunch of volunteers at all levels (but we always need more!); this is truly a community effort with everyone pulling together for each other.  Please read on for information about our founding members and coordinators, and our progress so far. 

Our directors and trustees:

Hannah Hobbs-Chell

Hannah was one of our founders, and continues to look after day to day needs as well as plans for the future. A horticulturist by trade, she loves nothing more than getting outside in the garden and enjoying nature. She is currently the gardener at High Mead Farm, another local not for profit therapy farm, and is very engaged in the local community.

Stuart Wayment

Stuart has been with us from the start, a real whizz with databases and a dependable lifeline to us. Stuart has a beautiful rescue dalmation and enjoys cycling.

Tony Brown

Tony is a bit of a local legend, always helping and supporting many causes and people. He is a trustee of The Fletcher Foundation, as well as a Dorset Chamber Mental Health First Aider. We are lucky to have him on our governance team. Will do anything for cake!
