Skatepark progress

Next to the Vale of the White Horse Leisure Centre, along Audlett Drive, work has begun on the long awaited skatepark.

It is late coming as building costs were more expensive than the budget. The ground being used is an old tip and special foundations needed adding. But additonal funding has been found, including £5,000 from the town council, and work has begun.

The signs say it will be ready in time for July (the summer school holidays).

This all came about because of a petition from young skaters a couple of years ago.

There are too many BMX riders in the park.
