Some of you may be aware that in previous years Havant, Emsworth and Leigh Park precincts have all had a Christmas Tree funded by the Council. Waterlooville Town centre however has been overlooked by the ‘powers that be’ and has missed out on this annual tradition.
Fret no more … I am pleased to announce that due to the efforts of Jackie Buckley from the Waterlooville Community Forum Events Team, Havant Borough Council, and County Councillor Robin Mcintosh, Waterlooville Precinct will have its very own Christmas Tree!
To help support the work being done by Jackie, a petition was set up by Kath Crockford from Coffeeville (Coffeeville is an independent coffee shop located in The Boulevard). Kath has asked us to pass on her thanks the +120 of her customers for signing the petition.
Some fund-raising is still required and will be 50% matched by HBC. If you as a resident or business want to put a few quid into the kitty, please sign up to our mailing list to keep up to date with the latest news.
P.S. Well done EVERYONE!
