Skateboarding in the UK has grown massively. It is even being considered for future Olympic status. We believe that Knutsford, which has a vibrant skating and BMXing community, should its very own skate park where we can safely practice our tricks and socialise in a safe and supportive atmosphere. We have formed a group of skaters of all ages, and have been consulting with the local community about designs, and imaginative ways to raise funds for the park!
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
It is a fantastic idea as it has captured the imagination of everyone in the town, the local council and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne. We have even got a supportive personal letter of support from legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk.
Steps to get it done:
It is important to acknowledge also that a quality skate park for Knutsford is one of the recommendations of the Knutsford Town Plan, which has the backing of the majority of people in the town.
