Christine Bayliss, who was the Labour Party’s general election candidate in Bexhill and Battle, has launched a new campaign to help save Skate Park facilities in the Town.
She said “Young people helped me secure the best result for Labour since 1955 and I want to do something to pay them back for their support. One issue that kept coming up on the doorstep was around the Skate Parks falling into disrepair”. At Galley Hill the half pipe has been dismantled and taken away while at Bexhill Leisure Centre there are bolts missing which mean that there are raised metal edges.
Christine invited the Park users and interested parties along to a street meeting at the Bexhill Leisure Centre Skate Park that was attended by around 50 adults and young people including a number of parents.
The meeting agreed to set up a Bexhill Skate Park Action Group to make sure the Skate Park is ‘Safe for Summer’ and then campaign to relocate and rebuild the Skate Park once the Downs Road site is redeveloped.
The Bexhill Stake Park Action Group has a virtual Facebook group where you can get further information. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1125954120838592/
