We are delighted to introduce a new App for Hook. This offers a great opportunity for residents to receive the latest information about local events and activities and to communicate directly with local groups, organisations and businesses using a Tablet or Smart Phone.

We are also proud to lead the way, with the only Council App in Hampshire. Search for ‘Hook Parish Council App’ on the App Store or Google Play.

The App will continue to develop as usage increases, so please tell friends, neighbours and family to download it. The main features are:

Events calendar – This section will be packed with information about various activities and events going on in Hook and include links to more information about the event or to ticket bookings.

Places – This button opens a map of Hook. Click on the place pin to directly access information about, or communicate with, the organisations shown.

Fix My Street – Directly from the main screen you can now report issues from your phone and upload photographs of the problem that you wish to report.

More – Here you will find local organisations along with many other features. Click on Local Organisations, select the organisation and you can call, e-mail, get directions or go to their website directly from the App.

A new “Welcome to Hook” pack will be added, to help new residents settle in and become part of the community. Until this is ready, there is a leaflet showing walks around Hook.

If you belong to a Hook organisation that would like their details included, please complete one or both of the registration forms on our Documents page.
