Community fund paves the way for park users

Visitors of Seafield Park can look forward to getting there without having to avoid the puddles of mud at the entrance thanks to a £582 grant from Fareham Borough Council's Community Fund.

The kissing gate entrance to the recreation ground in Hill Head is well used and this often results in the entrance becoming slippery with mud especially after heavy rainfall.  The Community Funding grant will pay for materials and labour costs involved in laying stone at the kissing gate and the surrounding muddy area.

 Executive Leader for Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Seán Woodward said: "Improvements to increase the accessibility for residents and visitors to the park is a great use of the Community Fund. I would urge anyone with a good idea for a project in Fareham to apply for funding".

The Community Fund is available to support projects that benefit the local community or environment within the Borough of Fareham. Any resident, or organisation based in the Borough can apply for money for one off capital funds from the Community Fund.

For more information contact a member of the Community Action Team (CAT) on 01329 236100 or email cats@fareham.gov.uk.
