West Park and Windmill Park - Funding!

YESSSSSS!!! We've just had news that the two WREN applications for £15K have been succesful! 

So West park will get an refurbed ramp that will be twice as wide! some rails and all the tamacing sorting aound the bumps, plus a good deal more area covered with some additional humps and bumps....

.....And Windmill Park will get a brand new purpose built BMX track! So well done to Andrew and the BMXers for sorting Windmill street!

Poynton Latest - new pics

Thanks to Carolyn M of the Deva working group for sending these pics. Looks like its comming along nicely. Ground works are done and the metalwork has been laid. Not too long before they start spraying the concrete. BUT remember the concrete will take a MONTH to cure! so no cheeky rides!

South park - planning approved!

The plans for Southpark skatepark came before the borough planning commitee today and we have just had word that the commitee approved the plans! This follows a couple of weeks of nail biting work by MSPG to support the project to help appease local concerns. Also enormous thanks to Cllr Maurine Radford who spoke in support of the project, and who apparently, in her day, was pretty tidy on rollerskates.
