Sideways wheel movement

I am not quite sure how to explain this. I have a bike very recently used for mountain biking as well as commuting so it has taken a lot of abuse. It is now just on commuting duties, however there seems to be movement in the front hub.

The axle is in place firmly but at the part of the wheel that doesn't rotate and the part that does rotate but there seems to be some play. Hence at the rim there is 1 - 2 mm of movement side to side.

Is it anything to worry about? As said I don't do anything serious on the bike any more, just on roads and maybe off the odd curb.
