Financial boost for skate park plans

PLANS to develop a new skate park in Centre Vale Park have been given a boost in the form of a £1,000 grant from Todmorden Town Council.

Groundwork applied to the town council for funding towards design proposals and estimates for the project.

Groundwork is working with a local skate group to develop the proposals for a new community skate park.

The town council is also looking into the possibility of an asset transfer of the new stake park.

Town clerk Catherine Emberson said: “We are looking into the feasability of it.”

The grant decision will go to full council for ratification.
