Press Release

Monday 15 July 2013

Fareham Park free summer fair & community voting day!

A free summer fair and community voting day will take place on Saturday 20th July, next to Henry Cort Community College, 11:00 am – 3:00pm.

Activities include:

During the day residents will have the chance to vote on which community project/s they would like to receive funding from the Fareham Park Purse Grant, and be entered into a free prize draw.

Local groups/charities have been applying for their share of £17,500 since May. The 'Have your Say' grant has been made available by Hampshire County Council to allow local communities to have more say on how public money is spent. Each of the applicants will have a stand at the fair giving more information about what they do, to help people choose. The winners will then be announced in the next few weeks.

Executive Member for Leisure and Community Councillor Connie Hockley said: "We've had some great applications in and I'd encourage people to come and vote for which one they'd like to see happen. Each of these projects will make a real difference to the Fareham Park area. As well as the chance to vote there will also be a range of fun free activities on the day, which should be a great family day out."
