Following public consultation last year at the Camelford Show, a “Meet the Designers” visit, and visits to Sir James Smith’s Secondary School and Camelford Primary School, we have now selected Freestyle to build our skatepark. We have also now applied for additional funding and are waiting for news as to whether this has been successful. We will be able to update you all further once we have news. The design chosen has had to be amended slightly in order to fit in with our vision for the site, but the elements of the park remain the same, based on your feedback. There may be further slight tweaks!
In partnership with The Town Trust, who have kindly agreed to lease the land to us, we have a big vision for the Old Cattle Market site. Our hope, if Phase 1 (the skatepark) is successful, is to redevelop the whole area but again this is subject to further discussions and funding.
Excited by this vision?
We are looking for volunteers (children and adults) to create a Skatepark Club, which will help support this vision by way of fundraising and publicising the work we are doing – even if that means just sharing our posts on social media! If you are interested, please get in touch with Amanda (email@example.com) to get involved and keep updated.
