Local Authorities are being encouraged to provide a skate park by local teenagers.
The group, recently set up on Facebook, is looking for ways at encouraging the local councils and other authorities to provide a skate park for local teens to use. The group, which has already gathered over 110 ‘likes’ on Facebook in less than a week.
Tweeting their thoughts about skating locally a number of teens have suggested that this would be a good idea as they are made unwelcome by local residents wherever they choose to skate.
In local years there have been a number of projects across the District that have aimed to set up skate parks, including one in Sibsey. However, only one has proved successful – Mablethorpe. The success of the Mablethorpe project was through sheer effort and team work and we’d like to encourage the group to continue with their efforts!
