Teenage media students battled against heavy downpours and strong winds to give Clevedon’s skatepark a fresh look.

Students from boomsatsuma’s Media production course at the Curzon chose to support the Clevedon Skate Project (CSP) as part of their National Citizenship Service award.

The group of 11 pupils, aged 16-17, worked tirelessly over a week and a half to clean up and paint the park as well as create social media profiles for the project.

CSP trustee Petra Mansour feels the initiative has had a really positive impact.

She said: “They have responded fantastically to every idea we have thrown at them; design work, documentary film-making, getting involved running our social media and even going above and beyond to actually getting their hands dirty and re-painting the existing ramps.

“It’s brilliant to see young people wanting to get actively involved in improving the town’s facilities and demonstrates exactly how we want to engage the community in the project.”
