The Hampton Wick Association (HWA) has announced the launch of its new Discover Hampton Wick campaign.

The campaign will include a number of events and initiatives which HWA say will encourage people to explore Hampton Wick's varied amenities, businesses, history and culture.

Kicking off the campaign will be the Discover Hampton Wick Treasure Hunt on Saturday 13 July, billed as "a family-friendly pub quiz on legs" by the association. 

Teams will compete to solve the most clues, riddles and challenges as they visit various locations around Hampton Wick, with cash prizes up for grabs.

The association is also holding an exhibition at Hampton Wick Library in September displaying photos of the High Street shops from 50 years ago next to their modern-day reincarnations. 

The event will be part of the wider Know Your Place heritage festival, run by Richmond Council.

As part of the campaign, HWA will be highlighting local businesses, clubs, activities, and other interesting places in the area on their website and on social media.

Fraser Wilson, Chair of the Hampton Wick Association, said: "The aim of our Discover Hampton Wick campaign is to help local residents learn more about Hampton Wick and all it has to offer.

"The Treasure Hunt will get the campaign off to a great start and we're all looking forward to a fun and memorable day in the Wick on 13th July."
