AskBoA: Skate facilities?
Skating in Bradford on Avon is tough and as a skateboarder i know the negativity people have about it, but we are in need of a proper skateboarding facility which would be looked after and used daily by us. There are several issues with Poulton such as, the remote area, the vulnerability of kids when they go there (usually broken glass etc) and the general quality / maintenance of the ramps. If we are ever asked why we don’t skate at Poulton we give the above reasons. We would preferably like a location where there is enough flat smooth space to ride around as well as ramps, Poulton is rather compact and there is not much flat ground. We skate at the station almost daily and no one seems to mind (the majority) but at the end of the day it’s a car park so there is a limit to what we can do and when we can go, however if it were a dedicated space, say the bottom area, then it would be perfect. but it seems almost impossible and we need the adults to understand, it seems to take one person to turn sonething good into something bad, but why so many people to turn something ‘bad’ to something good?
