Welcome to the website for the Bourne Skatepark project. Here we hope to provide all the information you need to see what’s going on with the idea.

 

Fund raising continues with about half the finances needed in place along with a plan of how to achieve the remainder. We are very grateful for the support and pledges that have enabled us to get to this stage.

The finish line is in sight! Come on, let's get it done!

We need as many donations, funding applications and fundraising activities as possible and we will make it.

 

Amazing news! The project not only has a design and a place to build it, but also planning permission to do so.

Fundraising to cover the build cost is the main concern for the project now.

We have a NEW donation page set up for this purpose. Please follow the link below to the VirginMoneyGiving page if you would like to support the project. Thank you.

For many reasons Bourne should have a skatepark. For some time now this project has been ticking over. About ten years ago it ground to halt since it proved impossible to find a suitable site within Bourne. Then the efforts were revived when land belonging to Bourne United Charities was offered for use at the beginning of 2012. The proposed location is on the Abbey Lawn recreation site on an area of grassland to the east of the main football pitch (see pictures).

 

 

A supplier CANVAS has been chosen as the supplier to design and build the Skatepark. A user group developed the design specifically for Bourne.  

 

 

Details of the use of the site at Abbey lawns have been worked on with Bourne United Charities. A site survey of the ground and the trees at the location has been carried out to confirm that the site is suitable.

 

New members are always needed for fundraising, could you help?

 

A Charitable Incorporated Organisation has been established to allow fundraising to progress.

 

Publicity for the project has been maintained with several articles in the local press and at local events.

The project is now called Dimension Skatepark. The project committee consists of entirely volunteers, and is a mix of local government officials, interested parents and enthusiastic youngsters. There is always room for more volunteers, so if you would like to add your name to the list please get in touch. We need someone to take notes of meetings, help with publicity and funding.
