Billy Trail treasure hunt update

Sorry, we managed to confuse our web site. If you came here to download the Billy Trail Treasure Hunt, or to get model answers, please use this link to go to the page you wanted. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

We launched the treasure hunt over the week-end of 6/7 July to support the other Hayling Billy 50 commemoration events taking place on the same day.

We handed out treasure hunts at the south end of the Billy Trail and in East street in Havant.

New money for Hayling’s leisure trails

We initially heard from Andy Leneghan that the Partnership for Urban South Hampshire (PUSH) had allocated £60K to improve access to leisure trails.

We’ve done some digging and Havant has confirmed that:

“£60,000 capital funding has been allocated to Havant Borough Council (HBC) by PUSH to improve access and connectivity to green infrastructure on Hayling Island through enhancements to the Billy Trail and the Seafront footpath/cycleway. HBC and Hampshire County Council will contribute S106 funding to match the PUSH grant which is to be spent on resurfacing work and provision of signage for both trails, including restoration of the old Billy Line signal arm. The work will be carried out during autumn/winter 2013/14 so it will be completed for Spring 2014.”

We’ll publish more details as we learn them.
