Children "lend a hand" to create Fontley Way hoardings


Children from the neighbouring Alton Community Playschool had 'a hand' in creating the colourful design for a vibrant new hoarding installed around the Fontley Way development site.

The children, aged between two and four, spent a fun, messy morning painting handprints which were incorporated in the final design of the hoarding which spans 40 metres and will enhance the area prior to and during construction.

The site, which was previously the home of the One O'Clock Club, has been boarded up whilst work on the plans for the development of 14 new affordable homes progresses. Planning permission was obtained in September 2020 and the team is currently in the final stage of the design process for the building, which will lead to the start of construction.
