IDEAS for a skatepark, an outdoor gym and a sports hall were put forward when people visited a consultation event to decide how a £1m lottery windfall should be spent.

The event was held at The Acorn Community Centre in Wecock and was the first opportunity for people to voice where they think £1m of Local Trust Big Local funding for Wecock should go.

A ‘graffiti’ wall, discussion tables and one-to-one interviews were used to get ideas from about 200 people who attended the drop-in event.

Councillor Yvonne Weeks, who is in charge of communities at Havant Borough Council, said: ‘This project is a fantastic opportunity for local residents to decide how the £1m lottery funding should be spent in Wecock, to make it an even better place to live.’
