Haven Green’s most special quality is the sense of peace and tranquillity that it provides alongside the busyness of the nearby town centre.
It provides an important informal meeting space for young and old alike. In the warmer months it bursts with young and old who enjoy the simple pleasures of sitting in the open air and watching the world pass by.
Many events take place on the Green that give it great interest and vitality to it, especially when they are organised by local groups for whom the Green is a place for the community to come together. Such events need to be well managed to ensure they do not intrude too heavily on the enjoyment of others, especially when alcohol or amplified music are involved.
FoHG wants to work with the authorities who license events on the Green to make sure events are well-managed. We also want to work with the licensing authorities to curb alcohol misuse on the Green.
