Residents handed grant to renovate play area

Residents handed grant to renovate play area
A residents' group in Southampton has been given a £10,000 grant to makeover a play area in the town.

South Western Echo reported that people complained a previous £40,000 makeover was left open for dogs to roam free resulting in the area needing more work.

During construction contractors had originally removed security fences and rubbish bins for "no real reason".

The group now plans to put up security fencing to ensure the safety of children using the play area as well as preventing dogs from fouling in the vicinity. The lottery grant will also provide money for community events.

Pam Mathews, residents' association chairman, added: "It proves that even very small groups of people like us can achieve benefits for the community by uniting and helping each other. The fencing will help to secure the safety of the little ones, and stop the problems of dog mess in the area."

Elsewhere, a family from Staffordshire is calling for security fencing to be installed in an alleyway near to their home after thieves stole lead from their roof.
