    Red face Rooksdown Skatepark, Basingstoke

    Hello my good people

    I wonder if you'd all do me a solid and put your little squiggle down on this online petition to support the installation of a concrete skatepark in Basingstoke, conveniently close to the A+E department.

    Link is here
    https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitio...rooksdown-park

    and facebook group is here:
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/rooksdownskatepark/

    Thanks so much

    Solidarity brothers!

    Signed.

    Just a quick thank you to everyone who signed the petition; a quick update - money is OK'ed, we just need to persuade them to build it in concrete and not framed. They are slowly getting used to the idea.....

    Hopefully (don't hold me to this) we can begin the design phase this year with a build occuring in time for next year? That's the dream.

    It'll be kind of Devizes shaped but a fair bit smaller at a pinch.

    So thanks for your support peoples!! =D

    Hi Everyone

    If you wouldn't mind - I need as many survey responses as possible on the following survey!!

    https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SV9B5SV


    Thanks! - Only sign once though, it will only count one review per IP address. It will allow you to fill it out multiple times but they wont all be included in the results.

    Planning permission has been granted! We've been delayed a fair bit by various issues (mainly noise) but by early summer next year, we'll have a new skatepark.

    We've got to have an opening jam so if you're interested in coming along for that join the facebook group linked below!

    Thanks for the support

    Crikey, that looks pretty good for government work. I like that downbox thing, I might have to give this a visit if I ever get back on my board.

    I was just looking at the pics I took from skating there this morning. If you are in the area it's worth visiting when empty, but otherwise better of visiting Winchester.
