Our man Cleggy spotted a post over on Facebook by a rider named Connor MacLaren from the Selby area earlier this week and we’ve had a few inboxes from locals telling us a little more about the destruction of the park they used to ride pretty-much every day. Connor sent us a little message also once he got a bit more information on why this tragedy has happened.
Conor MacLaren: “Basically there is an AstroTurf next to the park, they’ve ripped it all up for somewhere to park all the machinery for when they re do the turf, left us without a skatepark and hundreds of kids with no place to go. The council guy said he would sort us a place to ride too, but surprise surprise that fell through haha, typical fucking councils.”
This is not the first time we’ve seen this sort of thing happen by local councils who don’t seem to give a toss about skateparks. Cast your mind back to last year when the local Parish Council totally ruined Bar Hill Skatepark with a bulldozer You can read more about it here.
