Today two builders (hired by the council) used a digger to remove panels from the skatepark, in doing so they have completely wrecked the park. They have ruined even the ramps that were perfectly usable. The users & supporters are absolutely fuming at this shocking news. The park has basically been half demolished, despite the council saying they WOULD NOT do this in the near future. We need to find out exactly why this happened, and who is responsible.

The council informed us that the Skate Park will not be demolished in the near future. Some parts of the park will be made unusable, but the rest will still be able to used by skaters & BMXers. The council are now listening to the users & supporters of the skatepark, and are working with The Footprints committee to make sure there is a future for the park. Huge thanks for the support!
