Poynton redesign is here... Tell us what you think!

We have just recieved the redesign for Poynton Skatepark at Deva playing fields. It looks pretty sick, and with a bit more flat space along the bottom for the manual pad could be pretty much perfect for the space. 

BUT! we need your comments to give feedback to the council and team that are working on this, so PLEASE spread the word, get all the riders you know to check it out and leave comments below...

Remember, its only a small site, the size of a 25m swimming pool, so you cant pack everything in you want, but what there is here is a pretty versetile 2 stage bowl with some hips for jumping off...

So tell us what you think...

Yet more jam photos...

Some of these are sick...

Paint jam photos

Finally managed to get these on the web..... Taken the Sunday before Flock off, when the group painted the ramp, to give it better grip, and for a general spruce up.

More Jam photos...

Thanks to Mark Adams for these great shots.....

Poynton latest

A site meeting was held at Deva fields, Poynton today with
representatives from Maverick industries and the guys involved with
the Poynton plan. To cut a long storey short, it was agreed to
completely review the current design which has been much critisied for
it's compromised design and the overly tight stair set. Matt the
Maverick designer was clear about it's limitations and suggested
instead a tapered bowl design with several hips and a manual pad along
one side. This should fulfill the breif of being a good site for
beginners, with further challenges for more advanced riders. Mark from
the MSPG and Josh Palmer will be acting as conduits for comments on
the design from other users. We will publish the designs for comment
when we get them. So watch this space ....

Meeting 9th Sept 08

Just a quick meeting tonight to sort out the left overs of the Jam.... 
We raised around £100 from collections on the day and have been steadily selling the decks and Ts.
Going forwards, 
Jason is going to get something together for the BMXers in the town, who are feeling a bit left out. Hopefully this will be conjunction with Andrew at the Hub. More info on this soon.....
Mark is going to get stuck into the council and try and raise the need for a new Skate Park up the adgena. Might be a slow process!
Anyone interested in helping the group, please drop us a mail.

Flock off - Fish eye photos

Some great photos of the senior street jam winner and Frazer in the high jump comp. Taken at "Flock off" last Saturday. 

....more jam photos to follow

Poynton plan unveiled

This is an image of the proposed full concrete skate park at Deva playingfields, Poynton.

We think the bowl looks pretty good but it looks too tight to ride on the right, with the stair set not having enough run up or run off space. We will be lobbying to get this sorted with Maverick when we see them in the next few weeks.
Also wheres the manual box? one of the most useful pieces or a kicker for the bmx's?
Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

Tired of waiting? Anticipating?

Tired of waiting for the council to pull their fingers out and help build us a new park?

Then why not build your own ramp?

If you've got the room either indoors or out, you could fit a home made mini ramp or vert ramp in it. Free construction plans are available at

Contact us, if you're going to do it, and we'll come and give you a hand
