A group of Hampton residents has started a committee to facilitate relationships between neighbors and address town-wide woes.

The Hampton Roundtable’s mission ranges from starting conversation among the town’s residents to addressing the years-long battle with the lack of reliable internet coverage in Hampton.

The Hampton Roundtable started almost a year ago after a group of residents started brainstorming methods to pinpoint what the town needs.

“We were looking at ways to bring the community together,” said Renee Rountree.

Now about a dozen residents have joined the committee’s efforts. Others have signed on and introduced themselves on the group’s social media page: Facebook.com/groups/427911680975916.

“It’s a support network,” Ginny Kinsey said.

Hampton Supervisor Dave O’Brien applauded the group’s efforts.

“I think the effort they are doing to put together a roundtable to get more interaction between residents … is a great thing,” he said. “The Hampton community can benefit from more interaction between its residents.”
