Skateboarding and BMX
Some time ago a group of young people came to my councillors' surgery to talk about the need for somewhere they could do to use skateboards and BMX bikes. At the time we got them involved in a group of young people looking at what needed to be provided. Some time has gone by since then, but the good news is that the City Council is now having a serious look at what's needed in terms of a permanent site (obviously temporary ones are set up for the HUB festival). There's a consultation going on and I would really urge anyone interested - parents and grandparents as well as young people - to have their say. This link takes you to a story about the subject and a link to a form. All the views have to be in by the end of July.
