AFTER years of campaigning, light has finally been shed on a Broadwater green space.
For more than three years, the Broadwater Policing Panel has wanted to get lights erected at Kitty’s Field in Dominion Road – and now, the group has finally succeeded.
Funding was allocated by Worthing Borough Council from its 2012 budget, and the work was completed last month (April).
The panel hopes having light there will not only increase the usage of the only green space in the area, but will increase the safety of park users, too.
PCSO Nicola Burstow, who covers Broadwater and is on the panel, said: “It not only shows the perseverance and good work that went into getting this project completed, but more importantly it highlights the success of joint working between communities and partner agencies.
“This, hopefully, may lead to more residents joining our panels in a bid to improve the neighbourhoods where they live.”
The panel is now putting a strategy together to have the play equipment in the park refurbished.
“Let’s hope it doesn’t take another three years,” Nichola added.
