THE centre of Netley is being left to rot by Hampshire County Council.

For over a year now the railings in the very heart of the village have been broken and replaced with unsightly yellow hazard signs. Ironically, these have fallen down and are now a hazard in themselves!

Thousands of visitors pass this mess on the way to Victoria Country Park and it looks a complete eyesore.

This is the second time that Hampshire County Council have failed to look after Netley – last time it also took them over a year to fix the very same railings.

I bet this wouldn’t happen if it were Winchester !

Hampshire County Council: treat us with the same respect that you have for Winchester. Please fix our village.
