Have your say

MORE people are needed to join a partnership board leading the regeneration of Fratton.

Recruits would have a say in the Fratton Big Local project, which is using £1m over the next decade to help boost the Portsmouth district.

The board’s latest member is Pauline Morris, who has lived and worked in the city all her life carrying out accounting and admin roles.

Activities the local project has been involved in recently include the annual Big Lunch and a clean-up of Fratton railway station.

Community grants as part of the £1m scheme are also being offered. To find out more, email
