Walkers on a well-used footpath running between Red Barn Lane and High Mead can now avoid the puddles of mud thanks to a £3590 grant from Fareham Borough Council's Community Fund.
The footpath is a popular route for school children, residents and walkers wanting to access community facilities, but in previous years has been unusable during the winter. The Community Funding grant will pay for work to improve the drainage and lay an all-weather surface.
Executive Leader for Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Seán Woodward said: "Letting people use this popular path all year round 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.
