Skate Park cash boost

Chris Skidmore is delighted that local campaigners for Warmley Forest Skate Park have been successful in obtaining £50,000 for a complete transformation of the site. Chris has welcomed the investment, which will help transform the park and provide a new facility for our community.

As the local MP, Chris is regularly contacted by residents wanting to see investment made in our precious parks and open spaces to promote more active and healthier lifestyles and is encouraged to see recent investment being made across Kingswood – from new sports pitches in New Cheltenham to new play areas in Hanham.

Chris has been raising local concerns about the now run-down Warmley Forest Skate Park, which has been falling into disrepair for some time. The old skate park was constructed with metal frames and wood, with the facility in constant need of repair which proved to be uneconomical and led to its closure for health and safety reasons.
