A new home for skaters

Post by GD on Thu 17 Dec 2009, 1:18 pm

After 20 years of campaigning, skaters and BMXers have permission for a permanent skate park in Guernsey.

Environment has said yes to plans for concrete ramps at Beau Sejour.

The Extreme Sports Association will now have to raise two hundred thousand pounds to build it.

Deputy Mike O'Hara has been involved with the Association for the past 7 years and says there's lots of reasons why this is good news.

I think they should be made to pay for the repair of damage they have already caused to the Liberation Monument before they get any kind of permission or funding.

Then maybe the 'responsible' ones should make amends for the 'irresponsible' ones who are giving them a bad name by financing the repairs.

Did none of you go through the 'rites of passage' while growing up? Reading this thread I am in the company of people who were born already 'sainted'

What we called mischief is now classified as criminal!!!! scrumping is now stealing - but hands up anyone who didn't do that
