A COMMUNITY group has been given almost £10,000 in a bid to brighten up their area.

Broadlaw Walk in Fareham was renovated earlier this year with some brand new flats and some new shops.

The Broadlaw volunteers group has recently been set up as part of the regeneration and is based in the Broadlaw Community Space.

The group wants to make their own mark on the regeneration by creating attractive tiled mosaic sections along the path in the communal outdoor area.

First Wessex has now awarded the group £5,000, and Fareham Borough Council allocated the remaining £4,650 which was needed. The funding will be used for the materials, design, making and installation of the mosaic.

Cllr Trevor Howard said: ‘I’m over the moon. The people that volunteer who are running it have done an absolutely fantastic job over the last 18 months. They have big plans to do with the community. Anything that can brighten up the place will be absolutely great.’
