The Hamilton Parish Council (HPC) as it exists today was formed in 1971 when the Parish Councils Act was passed transferring the functions of the local Vestries to the parish councils and other authorities. One of the properties managed by the Vestry in Hamilton Parish was a cottage.  In 1991 the HPC purchased a small piece of land next to the cottage.

The cottage

The Cottage, located on Radnor Road, is currently held by the HPC as a rental property. There exists a tenancy agreement and a mortgage agreement between the HPC and the Bermuda Housing Corporation (BHC) which serves as a stable administrative arm for the HPC. Rent is therefore is paid to the HPC via the BHC. The upkeep of the cottage is a responsibility of the HPC.

In November 2013, we launched a new scholarship program. Its success requires the input and financial support of the residents of Hamilton Parish. Individuals, business and other organizations are invited to create scholarships, of any kind. Each donor decides how their scholarship will be titled. Some donors may want to create scholarships in their name, or choose to remember someone who has touched their lives by creating a memorial or honor scholarship. What better way to honor the memory of a loved one or pay tribute to a special person than to create a scholarship or a program in their name. Memorial or honor scholarships may be funded annually or through an endowment.

In 2019 we launched a free math tutorial program to assist middle school students residing in Hamilton Parish.  Classes are held in a local Church hall and they are conducted by experienced teachers. All pupils are assessed and tutors work with parents & guardians to ensure progress is being made. Contact us if you would like to participate.
