A group of Petersfield residents is acting to protect local green space from developers.

People who live in Merritt’s Meadow have purchased the land and leased it to a new conservation trust.

The meadow is one of the precious green fingers that links Petersfield town centre to the surrounding countryside. It sits between Station Road and the Tilmore area.

Sue Hines is one of the trustees. Shine Radio’s Stephen Martin met her in the meadow.
