EAST LEAKE PARISH COUNCIL SKATE PARK UPDATE

THE SKATE PARK IS OPEN!

Streetwise Environmental has completed the first stage of the required repairs to the skate park and after inspection has declared it fit for use.  Further work will need to be carried out on the cement surface in due course but this does not compromise the use of the skate park.

East Leake Parish Council look forward to seeing boarders back on the skate park.  May we ask that users look after it and report any problems to us as soon as possible.

 

ENJOY!

 

EAST LEAKE SKATE PARK UPDATE - 6th JANUARY 2015

The Parish Council has, prior to Christmas, been arranging for work to be carried out to repair the skate park which needed some work after an inspection but even more work after the vandalism which followed.  Whilst the wet weather has hindered some of the progress, in that some heavy machinery has not been able to access the area due to the soft and wet ground, some preparation work was started by Streetwise Environmental just before Christmas, whilst awaiting delivery of materials, with a view to carrying on with repairs after Christmas subject to the weather.

Sadly, the preparation work started by Streetwise has been compromised due to more vandalism over Christmas - panels removed, security fencing damaged and fencing blocks thrown inside the structure.  The Police have been contacted about this criminal damage, trespass and vandalism. 

The Streetwise Team has arrived onsite today but is now faced with repairing the damaged caused over Christimas prior to starting the actual repair of the skate park, thus delaying repairs even longer.

The Streetwise Team will be on site until the project is complete (subject to the weather).  The wooden panels are being replaced metal work reinstated and repairs to the concrete base are to follow. 

The Parish Council is keen to get the skate park back in to use and it has been somewhat frustrating that the work has been delayed due to the persistent vandalism and the wet weather.  We hope that the skate park can be repaired with no further incidents of vandalism in order to get it open  again for the enjoyment of all of you who worked so hard to get it installed.  We will let you know when the skate park is officialy reopened and fit for use.
