Hayling railway revamp given go ahead

Local volunteers have secured a grant of nearly £89,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore the Hayling Billy heritage project.

The project will explore the history of Hayling Billy line on the island and enable conservation to take place.

It will also provide volunteering opportunities for local people to develop skills and work on the historic site.

To help guide people around the site there will also be leaflets, digital material and a new website to engage visitors.

The benefits for the local community will be a heritage project for generations to come, a focus for community volunteers to work on together to create a lasting legacy for local people and visitors. The Partnership have worked really hard with the council officers on securing the funding however, this is just the start."
