Skate Park Association.
It’s Here !!
you read this Over will have it’s own Skate Park located on the New Recreation
ground near the all weathers surface, the ramps were finally installed in mid
the members of OSKA would like to say a big thank you to everyone that helped
out or donated to this venture and thus enabling us to be able to achieve what
has been done, I am not going to name people or organisations as you know who
you are and I am bound to miss someone out.
We would also like to thank the Parish Council and other funding bodies who have given so generously.
It seems like a life time ago that this project was undertaken and things have been somewhat frustrating at times, however now the Village has gained another asset which helps build on the existing facilities that are so admired by visitors to Over. I have lost count of how many times I have heard people expressing their envy of what we have in the shape of the Community Centre and it’s ever growing amenities and the Skate Park is just the latest addition.
So the next
time you have some time on your hands why not take a walk up to the Community
Centre and see what I have and others have been ranting on about over the
months, you might be surprised.
Ok so what next, well there is a need for some litter bins and some seating near to the Skate park, these are needed immediately, unfortunately until all the bills are in we will not know if we have any spare funds left to pay for any of this.
There is also some room on the skate park for a couple of smaller pieces of equipment, but they will need funding, so if anyone has any great ideas on how we might achieve this let me know.
CCTV will be installed by the Community Centre in the very near future, this should help alleviate fears of anti-social behaviour whilst also protecting the users of the Skate Park form undesirable elements.
would cost several thousand pounds once again some serious fund raising is going
to be required if it is to happen, at the moment we have the summer with its
long evenings, but it will not always be this way, then the pressure for
lighting will increase.
PARENTS, remember you are responsible for your
children’s behaviour even when they are out of your sight
the Skate Park is for all ages not just the Teenagers
When using the Skate Park please wear all the relevant safety Equipment, you are liable for your own safety. Please do not smoke or drink alcohol when you are visiting the Skate Park, anyone who is caught using or selling illegal substances will be prosecuted.
Please use the Skate Park and don’t abuse it. A lot of effort has gone into building the Skate Park, so please look after it as no one is going to replace it should it mistreated.
we get the litter bins in please can you pick up any you see lying around and
when we have the bins on site please you them and encourage others to do so.
