The Friends of Marple Memorial Park web site has been updated with the latest developments on the Skate Park, including 2 designs schemes that will be discussed further with Skate Park Users.

http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/projects/skate-park-improvements.html

We still have some consultation work to do before deciding the best possible scheme for our park but the key challenge now is to raise enough money to get it done. We've established that it will cost around £25k to refurbish and improve the existing skate park and we have simpler schemes from the contractors featured in the site that would cost around £50k.

We would like to achieve the best possible upgrade to the Skate Park but whether it will cost £25k, £50k or £75k, these are significant sums of money that we do not yet have.

It's important that we do not raise expectations too high too soon and Skate Park Users excited by these schemes need to understand that it may take a long time to find the funds needed. But that's not going to stop us trying!

Some of the skate park users might like to get involved with fund raising themselves.  Young people do like to get involved sometimes!   :)

Yes you're right, I'm expecting them to help and I was including skate park users in the "us". They've been involved in the consultation so far and I would hope that they will help us raise match funding. But if the bulk of the funding isn't found from a decent sized grant it will take a long time to accumulate £75k and I don't want them to think it will all be done and dusted by this summer (which is one of the first questions asked on the facebook page).

Even though we are not yet halfway through, March has been a very successful month for the Friends of Memorial Park's ongoing project to care for the park's benches. Or rather, the efforts of several months have all come to fruition together and this evening the caring for the park benches page has been updated with 3 new successes!

Many thanks to the lady busily planting up the flower bed outside the rescued toilets - it looked lovely as I walked past this morning. :)
