New Potters Bar community shelter ‘is unique’
A “UNIQUE” lottery-funded shelter is now in use in a Potters Bar park.
The shelter can be found in Furzefield Park, just off Mutton Lane, and is part the Hertsmere Community Spaces project to enhance local parks in the borough.
Cllr Brenda Batten, portfolio holder for leisure, culture and health, said: “The new structure is really unique.
“The whole community will be able to use the new shelter – when I visited it, a local resident was already making the most of it and sitting in the sun, throwing a ball for his dog.
“I hope residents will welcome the new shelter to their local park and use it whenever possible.”
