Building the skatepark

The tennis courts at the back of the Sports and Social Club are getting a makeover of the most dramatic kind. Thanks to grant funding from WREN, New Homes Bonus money (a grant paid by central government to local authorities to incentivise development) and long-term reserves invested specifically for leisure equipment in the Parish Council budget, we are able to install a new skatepark and multi-use games area (MUGA).

The Parish Plan of 2013 and subsequent surveys showed that residents would like to see additional play equipment for older children, and this is it.

After many months of planning, the work began at the end of November and these pictures show that it’s gradually taking shape.

We hope that this fantastic new facility will be ready for use early in the spring.
