Friday, 13th July,
4.30 Fun and Games
Over the past month we
have attempted to draw attention to the disastrous and ill-conceived
decision to install a Skate Park at Vansittart Road Recreation
Ground. In our previous updates we have detailed at length, complete
with illustrations, the problems that the facility has already
caused. The various
articles are listed here.
With the 'Official Opening
Ceremony' now announced for Friday 13th July at 5.30, we suggest
that this is an ideal opportunity to make our views clearly heard
by all concerned.
We invite all concerned
residents to be present at Vansittart Rec in the course of this
opening ceremony and to lobby officials and councillors.
The fact of the matter
is that the whole concept of a Skate Park in this part of town
is generally agreed to be a mistake - and that includes councillors
and borough officials.
It merely remains therefore
to bring about the removal of the Skate Park to a more acceptable
and appropriate location.
Update 6th July
A letter is distributed to local residents
inviting them to the Official Opening.
