Have your say

MORE than £10,000 has been spent on bringing a fountain back to life in a high street.

Workers have finished repairs to the fountain at Falkland Gardens in Gosport this week.

Councillor Mark Hook, leader of Gosport Borough Council, said it showed the council has pride.

He said: ‘We take pride in Gosport. The Falkland Gardens are always kept in good order and the fountain was something people made comments on, wanting to see it back as it was.’

In total £10,251 was spent on new pumps, electrics and to repair a leak in the fountain.

A coin slot is also due to be fitted.
