Southwater Parish Council announced on its Facebook page this afternoon (Friday August 17) that it has found someone to carry out repairs on the skateboard park in Southwater.

The statement on the Facebook page reads: “We have managed to find someone who can carry out repairs to the existing ramp.

“We have also drawn up a refurb programme, but for this we will need help with funding - any ideas?

“We hope that the repair work will start in the next two weeks, after which time you will be able to use Southwater Skate Park again.

“Everyone at Southwater Parish Council has worked really hard to ensure that the Skate Park remains the best of the best.

Thanks for all your comments and support - keep it coming!”
