More than 40 people spent the morning cleaning Nailsea’s skatepark ready for the spring.

Nailsea Skatepark Project held a spring clean to prepare the facility for the influx of enthusiasts in the sunnier months.

Scores of people turned up to help with sweeping, painting and litter-picking and organisers put on a barbecue to feed the hungry volunteers.

Nailsea Skatepark Project also held an open meeting on March 28 to discuss the future of the facility and how to tackle issues such as rubbish and graffiti.

Phil Williams said: “Talking to the users afterwards, they all thought it was a really beneficial meeting, and all of them were determined to sort out any short-term problems so it continues to be a place of fun, safety and community friendship.

“With a public space like the skatepark, there are always going to be challenges, but by working together I believe we can sort these issues out.”
