As part of Hayling BESTs organisation a new coastal team will be set up after 10000 in grant money was awarded to rejuvenate the islands seafront.

The money will be used to help make it more attractive for visitors and a thriving area for local businesses. Theres the opportunity for others to get involved decide how best to spend the money and steer what improvements are made. Anyone with suggestions should give Rosemary Satchwell (Hayling BEST chairwoman) a call on 02392 637590.

An opportunity to bid for a further 50000 to add to the kitty is also on the table. Money has been made available by the government after pledging to help 104 coastal communities across the UK.
