August

It's getting closer all the time. Even with the challenges of the last 12/18 months this project still has legs and is moving forward all the time.

2020

July

Fundraising has continued and over 50% of the total £327000 has either been received, awarded or pledged. Some grant applications have been declined and the current circumstances present a challenging outlook, but Bourne has needed a skatepark for some time and possibly now more than ever, so the effort will continue.

Meetings are now held on Zoom as we are unable to meet face to face for the time being.

2019

A number of companies invited to tender to design and build a skatepark for Bourne.

February 

752 young people completed survey of local schools with over 80% saying they would like a skatepark in Bourne. Over 70% said they would help with running of the skatepark once it is built. This is really valuable information which we can use to support the planning application.

We have just let a contract to Acoustic Associates to assess the likely noise the proposed skatepark would make. This was the main issue raised by the feedback from the Pre-planning application.
