We are indebted to one of our members for these pictures. The ‘guerilla knitters’ have been at work and we’re delighted to see such well cultured vandalism in the town centre and surrounding areas. With Havant Civic Society’s self driven regeneration programme including the restoration of town centre listed buildings, including the Gazebo Garden and, with a fair wind, the signal box, it’s lovely to see the Yarn Bombers doing their bit to brighten up the historic town centre for this significant centenary.
We do hope that Havant Borough Council will take a lead from this community and kick start their own Regeneration Programme from its current glacial pace with some urgent projects in the town centre. They might also take note of our editor’s suspicion that one of the new town centre businesses may just have had some involvement here.
Expect more on the subject of regeneration later.
