Swaffham Sk8 Mob
The Sk8 mob are a group of Local young people who got involved in saving their much loved skate park from being removed.
SK8 Mob updates
Our campaign was to raise £25,000 locally, to support our bid for grants for up to £150,000 to replace the Skate Park equipment on Haspalls Road Recreation Ground and also to hopefully provide a Multi-Use-Games-Area (MUGA). This has now been completed.
These great new outdoor facilities provide the opportunity to learn new skills have fun and exercise.
Everyone alongside the Town Council has worked hard to raise funds for these projects, this included
Iceni Youth Team many generous individuals and business in town. Major funders included WREN
the Geoffrey Watling Charity, Breckland District Council Sort and Play Fund. The contractors who successfully bid for the contracts, are Wheelscape, for the Sk8park and HAGS SMP for the MUGA
The exciting news is we have now had the official Launch and celebration
Local young people sports groups and visitors, demonstrated their skills to showcase the new and existing facilities. Everyone was welcome to come and watch or try out the new facilities.
All of us at Iceni Youth wish to thank the Town Council for involving us in the consultations and at all of the stages of this project, and we wish to say "Well done" to everyone who was involved in all of this. It is a fantastic achievement and example of what can happen when young people come together and work in partnership in the community.
