Skills on show for Falmouth skate park fundraiser

First published in News

THE team behind plans for a new skatepark for Falmouth gave their campaign a jump-start last week with a fundraiser that attracted almost 100 skaters and supporters.

The Falmouth skatepark committee hosted a skate, film and jam night at the Rebel Brewing Company in Penryn. The over-18s night featured music, the screening of skate films, skating demonstrations, a barbecue, merchandise stalls and raffle.

There was also an interactive ideas wall which was the centrepiece for discussions on the new skatepark with supporters putting forward their own suggestions for the new facility.

The skate jam gave some talented skaters a chance to show off their skills, and prizes were awarded to the best two. These prizes, and those offered in the raffle, had been donated by local businesses.

The evening raised around £400 towards the campaign, but as well as being a fundraiser, it was also used by the committee to launch new promotional T-shirts which will soon be on sale through the social networking site Facebook page, “get a new skatepark in Falmouth,” and at Sessions Surf Shop.

I think a skatepark is an excellent idea, the more facilities like this available throughout the county the better.
