Sophie Fullerlove, director of The Spring, said: ‘The Spring, and its trading subsidiary Havant Arts Active, takes its responsibility as a recipient of public funding seriously.

‘We recognise that this means not only using our grants and funds effectively to deliver our charitable activities, but also to care for our staff.

‘We can only manage the cultural activities that make a real difference to the community if we have a dedicated team who are well looked after.’
