Launch day for skateboard ramp


Plans are being put in place for the official launch of a skateboard ramp in Winthorpe.

The opening ceremony has been pencilled in for Thursday, May 28 at the village recreation ground.

To mark the occasion boarders have been invited to join a graffiti artist in spray painting the 30ft long ramp.

Winthorpe Community Partnership secured a £12,000 grant for the ramp from the People’s Health Trust.

Partnership secretary Jodi Bradbury said: “The kids asked to have a skateboard ramp, they supported the bid, and now it is finally here they absolutely love it.”
