COMMUNITY workers have been appointed to help drive Portsmouth’s regeneration.

As reported, a community development worker and an administrator are needed to plan how £100,000 will be spent in Fratton this year, as part of the Fratton Big Local project.

The initiative’s aim, led by Fratton Big Local Partnership, is to spend £1m improving the area over the next decade.

Stuart Mills has been appointed as the community development worker.

He spent seven years at First Wessex housing association working with residents’ groups and helped to organise activities.

Stuart said: ‘I’m looking forward to working with an organisation that is run by and for the residents of Fratton.

‘The partnership board has lots of plans and it will be exciting to help make them happen.’

Linda Johnson, who previously worked with Rowner Community Trust, has been appointed as administrator.

Residents can find out more about the Fratton Big Local project at May Fayre at St Mary’s Church, in Fratton, on Monday, May 5.
