|Things they won't tell you in Standpoint and Focus|
|Extract from recent Local Area Committee minutes|
The combined footpath / cycle way through Greta Park to Turnpike Way is an excellent idea, and was positively received by people living nearby. It is also a much better use of contributions from housing developers than the Lib Dems' recent decision to invest £360,000 in the Rose Bowl boxing club.
However pedestrians hoping to walk from Turnpike Way to the centre of Hedge End without getting wet and muddy shoes, have been disappointed.
The slightest rain sees the path flood in a number of places, leaving slimy, slippery mud on the new tarmac surface, and on winter mornings dangerous ice.
