Freshwater Parish Council is very sorry that following a Royal Society of Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Report it has had to close the Skate Park for now. The report says “ The equipment is in a very poor state with significant hazards present. The inspector recommends that the site is closed to the public until it can be made safe. The equipment may be beyond the point of economical repair”.
The Parish Council is actively working to make safe as many items as is possible as quickly as we can. We are extremely sorry that this facility has had to close at this time.
Details of the safety inspection can be found here.
We will continue to keep you updated once we know more about what, if anything can be saved.
