A new barrier at a village hall has helped to increase security, reduce litter and cut down on anti-social behaviour.
Plaitford Village Hall has installed a new barrier to their car park after a £1,000 Councillor Community Grant from Test Valley Borough Council.
The hall trustees applied for the funding in a bid to help cut down on anti-social behaviour and litter that has been left in the car park. Having now been installed for two months, Blackwater ward members, councillors Nick Adams-King and Gordon Bailey have been pleased with the results.
Councillor Bailey said: “Being able to help residents feel a little bit safer in their village community is a brilliant thing to be able to do.”
