The parish, which until 1972 was called Hampreston, includes the communities of Hampreston, Longham, Stapehill and Trickett's Cross.[1] The latest population figure (according to the 2011 census) for the parish is 26,559.[2]

Ferndown Middle school (on the former Gorsemoor Middle School site) takes pupils at age 9 from Ferndown First School (on the old Ferndown Middle School site), from Hampreston First School and from Parley First School. The Ferndown school changes occurred in the late 1980s and early 1990s when the original first school was demolished to make way for a small residential area. The two middle schools combined and one became the new first school.

The Pure Drop in Ferndown is a friendly pub situated approximately six miles from Bournemouth and Poole and eight miles from the New Forest.

The first chairman of the BID is Russell Bowyer who is quoted as saying “A BID can only be established if it does useful things for local businesses. It is a fair and equitable means of businesses working together to address matters of common interest. It also means that 100 per cent of the money raised stays in the local area to be spent on priorities determined by the local business community.”
