THOUSANDS of pounds in funding will improve a village’s flood defences.

Fareham Borough Council and the Environment Agency have given £70,000 to improve the defences at the River Wallington. After last year’s wet weather, the council consulted with The East Solent Coastal Partnership and identified suitable repairs to the banks of the river.

Work, carried out by Balfour Beatty, is starting on Monday and will finish on November 28. Part of the footpath and a section of Broadcut car park will be closed.
