OFFICIALLY OPEN: Young scooting enthusiasts cut the ribbon on the new skatepark equipment, watched by parish and district councillors


THE new skatepark in Colyton was officially opened yesterday (Monday) by local youngsters, town and district councillors. The much-awaited equipment in the Peace Memorial Playing Field was installed just in time for the Easter holidays and has since been a popular hit with young skating and scooter enthusiasts. The £18,000 skatepark was funded by Section 106 money from developers and a donation from the Colyton Chamber of Feoffees, and was put in place by Colyton Parish Council. Local youngsters who were enjoying the facilities on their scooters cut a ribbon yesterday after the annual Colyton Tractor Run, watched by members of Colyton Parish Coucil, district councillor Helen Parr and others who had supported the project. Parish council chairman Andrew Parr said: “We are very pleased to have our skatepark installed, working and so well used after all the years trying to get it. “We are thankful for the Section 106 contribution and donation from the Colyton Chamber of Feoffees.”
