Street Snooker - Town Council Consults
Whatever happened to jumpers for goalposts? Street Snooker could be coming to a recreation ground in Hedge End. The Town Council is consulting on whether to install one or more of these new games, which have recently been featured on BBC TV.
From a personal point of view I have concerns about how much they would really be used and for how long after the initial novelty wears off, and about the visual impact of a bright green wall on people who use our recs for informal leisure and relaxation, and whose houses overlook the rec. Greta Park, Turnpike Way and Dowd's Farm Park have been mentioned as possible locations.
Details of the consultation are on the Town Council web site - here -, and I do hope that as many people as possible make their views known to the Council and their Councillors so that we can make an informed decision on how to spend your money.
