Nailsea Skatepark Project is holding an open meeting to discuss the future of the facility.

The skatepark has been open for almost three years and is used extensively by members of the community and people visiting from further afield.

Nailsea Skatepark Project, police officers and Nailsea Town Council are keen to find out how the area can be improved for users and how antisocial behaviour at the site can be prevented.

Phil Williams, from Nailsea Skatepark Project, said: “It is fantastic to see that after the 20 months or so of hard work and fundraising to get to the figure of around £116,000 which enabled us to build the park, it continues to be a really popular community space.

“Nailsea Skatepark Project, along with the police and the town council, would like to host a further open meeting about the park – which follows on from the previous one in December 2017 – in order to see if there are other ideas we can introduce to assist park users to enjoy it even more, as well as discussing some of the more negative behaviour that unfortunately has been seen in the park on occasions.

“The meeting will be focussed both on a celebration of the park’s success, as well as an opportunity to share thoughts with Nailsea Skatepark Project, Nailsea Town Council, community groups and the community police team to move forward and listen to ideas to ensure it remains a safe and exciting space.”

The meeting will take place at Number 65 High Street on March 28 at 7.30pm and refreshments will be available.

The team is also holding an annual spring clean at the skatepark on April 10 at 10am.

Phil added: “We want to make this a great opportunity to have the park looking its very best, and the police will be providing a barbecue free for all those involved.

“We’ll be providing all you need to get involved with painting, sweeping, and we hope to do a big litter pick around the area as well.

“This is a great opportunity for the wider community to get involved, with many hands this should make a huge difference.

“If you are a community group or business that would like to volunteer your services, this would be amazing.”
