MORE than 100 names have been suggested by residents for Havant’s new £13m civic offices.

Some of the names being considered include The Fountain, drawing on Havant’s water heritage, Havant Hub, Parchment House, Centre Point, Go Public and Havcom Civic Centre.

Others suggestions include PLACE2B and The Vie, standing for village and life.

Havant Borough Council threw the naming exercise open to the public earlier this month and the closing date for entries is March 31.

Council leader Tony Briggs said: ‘There are some very good ideas in there.

‘We want an iconic name that fits the modern building and the modern way of delivering services.’

A panel of community representatives, including the editor of The News, Mark Waldron, will decide on the final name.

Suggestions can be emailed to namethebuilding@havant.gov.uk.

The revamped offices are due to be unveiled in September this year.
