After complaints of anti social behaviour in the Vigo Recreation ground, meetings with local residents,police, TVBC officers & your local Councilors were held in the Andover bowls club. The idea of these meetings were to find ways to solve the problems that have been disturbing residents in the Recreation Road area. Mainly groups of young people congregating by the bench’s drinking until the small hours!
Good news is that most of the ideas that I suggested at this first meeting have now been approved, following a survey to all residents. These are that the 2 benches will be relocated elsewhere in the park, the hedge/fence will be repaired & uniform in height. Trees will be trimmed back to allow the footpath to be properly lit in the evenings. Funding has been found to put a barrier in at the car park.
Local residents chairman Peter Steele congratulated Cllr Nigel Long in the work done so far. Both agree that this should help improve the area. More work needs to be done tho. The next meeting is on the 19th November 2012 at 6.30 pm. Held at the Andover Bowels Club, in the Recreation Ground2 Comments
