The skatepark in Wyndham Park is due to reopen in a couple of weeks.

Skatepark Committee member Jenny Sutherland told members of Wyndham Park Forum that the G-zone facility would reopen following its closure in October when it was felt to be too dangerous.

Damaged ramps and structural issues forced the closure of G-zone and a number of ramps were dismantled. This has left just a half-pipe to be used by skaters.

The committee has launched a fundraising drive in a bid to raise £150,000 for a hard-wearing concrete skatepark.

Jenny said that Pc Steve Cummings, a founder of G-Zone, would inspect the skatepark and rubbish had to be cleared away before the facilitiy could be opened to users.

She says that skaters will use this facility for about two years, at the end of which she hopes enough money will have been raised to build a brand new concrete facility.

The committee is keen to attract business sponsorship or donations from individuals to wards the building of the new skatepark. It also wants to hear any suggestions for fundraising ideas. If you would like to help, email
