Youngsters suggest skate ramp

SKATE PARK - At the September meeting of Leasingham Parish Council, three young villagers approached the council about the possibility of installing a half pipe skate ramp in the village. They offered to raise money to purchase the equipment.

Council chairman Jonathan Franks suggested that a temporary structure might be a better solution which could be stored away when not in use. It was agreed to put the idea on the agenda for discussion at the next meeting on Monday, October 8.
