‘There’s nothing to do and we are bored’. Sound familiar? Well it might if you are the parent of a child in Whelnetham. But maybe it’s time for things to change. Maybe it’s time for a skatepark!

A deputation of youngsters came along to tonight’s Parish Council meeting and demonstrated quite vocally on how they would like such a facility in the area. A half pipe, a ramp and grind rail (I only know what these things are because my son is an avid skateboarder) were top of the wish list.

But what do you think? A good idea? A waste of money? – let us know what you think. Let us have your ideas and your plans. If we all want it then we should make it happen.
