Skate West Moors 2021

Skate West Moors 2021

Published: 28 Jun 21

Works commenced on West Moors skate park Tuesday 22nd June 2021 and demolition is complete. The project was given the go-ahead after Community consultation, Full Council voting and very generous funders; Veoila Environmental Trust http://www.veoliatrust.org Leisure Development Fund at Dorset Council The National Lottery Community Fund · Non-profit organisation #NationalLottery – acknowledging National Lottery players' support. Without this, TNL grant would not be possible. Tesco Bags of Help www.tesco.com/communitygrants. The new park was designed by the local user group, people that attended the skate party consultation in September 2019 and the contractor CANVAS. To work with the young people of the community and achieve a design which includes many features requested by them was a great opportunity for everyone to “have their say” in what they wanted in the skate park. The Council really do hope to see an improvement in well being, community cohesion, social behaviour and performance skills of beginners and existing experts! Read More...
