TEENAGERS have secured new sports equipment after teaming up with a parish council.

A new £7,500 multi-sports area for the Bradley Road playground in Harestock, Winchester, has been unveiled.

It comprises a basketball hoop, football goal and cricket stumps.

The parish council launched the project after receiving a deputation from the school council at Henry Beaufort Secondary during the summer.

School council member Becky Hemming, 13, said: “There were lots of groups of children hanging around here not doing anything, so we thought it would be good to get something productive for them to do.”

The new equipment was funded through developers’ contributions from the parish’s open spaces fund.
