BUS shelters are to get a revamp thanks to applications for a share of community cash.

Three groups of people have made successful bids through Fareham Borough Council’s community action team funds scheme for the shelters.

A replacement bus shelter has been built at Blackbrook Road, Fareham, with the help of a £2,800 award.

The new shelter has seating.

A grant of £4,500 has gone towards a pair of new shelters along Hillson Drive, Fareham, with one on each side of the road, opposite St Columba’s Church.

And residents of Titchfield applied for funding to purchase and install a bus shelter at Southampton Hill in Titchfield.

They received a grant of £4,800.

Councillor Sean Woodward, leader of the council, said: ‘I am pleased that the council has been able to support the local community with grants from the community fund. I hope the new bus shelters will help to ensure residents can use public transport more comfortably.’
