Clean-up Needed

The text currently on this page needs further work. It was most likely imported or reproduced from a website associated with the subject of the page - possibly through a process involving far-from-perfect machine translation, often with awkward results. It is awaiting the attention of an experienced M3P editor, which could be you. It may be slightly out of date, or may need other elements taken care of appropriately, including proofreading or copy-editing for grammar and style.

Il-Ħamrun is one of the suburbs on the Maltese islands and is around 2 miles from the Capital city il-Belt Valletta (Città Umilissima). It is built on a plain rising softly at the vicinity of Tas-Samra. The roads of il-Ħamrun are straight except for a couple of narrow streets down the police station.

Il-Ħamrum was taken from three parishes , that of Ħal Qormi (Città Pinto), of Birkirkara and Floriana. The limits of il-Ħamrun reached further out than they do nowadays but when Santa Venera and il-Marsa became parishes in their own right, large chunks of il-Ħamrun were taken from its jurisdiction.

Il-Ħamrun’s motto is ‘Propera Augesco which means ‘I grow suddenly’. This suburb took a long time to establish itself however when it did it grew and developed in a short period of time and became known as il-Ħamrun as it is known today.

Today it is very different from 60 or 70 years ago with the advancements it went through in a short period of time and it now almost competes with the Capital City il-Belt Valletta (Città Umilissima). One finds shops of all sorts and this makes life comfortable for the people who needn’t go far out for their everyday needs.
