Camelford Town Council is looking forward to the Grand Opening of Phase 2 of the Old Cattle Market Regeneration Project on Saturday 5 March from 11am to 5pm, in conjunction with its St Piran’s Day Celebrations. The project includes the construction of North Cornwall’s first and only pump track and parkour area, café/youth hub, outside gym bars, table tennis table and extension to the existing skatepark that was built in September 2018.
The project was made possible by £125k funding from the National Lottery Community Fund (which includes £10,000 for a Youth Worker), £50k funding from Sport England, £25k funding from Saputo Dairy UK (formerly Dairy Crest) and £16k seed/match funding from Camelford Town Council (CTC).
The Grand Opening has also been supported by the European Development Funds “Welcome Back Fund”, in association with Cornwall Council and Hall for Cornwall. This has meant a fun packed timetable of events (starting at 11am) has been made possible with; the Urban Playground Team showcasing their “Zoo Humans” show and parkour workshop, Plymouth legend DJ “Steve Fudge” doing a DJ set and workshop, Lennox Pearce providing breakdancing demos and a workshop, live music with Gary McCausland and a 40ft inflatable assault course for all to enjoy. Cornish Crepes and the New Hanger Management will be providing food and drink. There will be a chance to enter into an amazing raffle with prizes donated from New Hanger Management, Mermadium, Skate Warehouse, Air Culture and Mount Hawke Skatepark. There will also be other activities in the Town with a pasty making workshop in the Old Bank at 10am (followed by a competition for best pasty and saffron bun), Folk band “Annown” playing in the Bandstand at 1pm, and a fastest eating Pasty Competition at 8pm supported by the Masons Arms Pub just before the Trelawney Shout at 9pm. Proceeds go to St Petrocs, the Mayor’s nominated charity for 2021-22. For more information visit www.visitcamelford.co.uk and go to the What’s On Page.
