Grand opening of Lancing's new skatepark
Released: Friday, 21 July 2017
Lancing's new £100,000 seafront skatepark is set to be officially opened this weekend.
The new facility in Beach Green has been funded thanks to section 106 payments received by Adur District Council from the development of Brighton & Hove Albion's new training ground.
The event, which is being hosted by Lancing Parish Council, will take place tomorrow (Saturday 22nd July 2017) at 1:30pm.
It will include skating demos with an array of prizes on offer to those taking part.
Councillor Neil Parkin, leader of Adur District Council, said:
“I'm delighted to see this community facility open which will allow young people from Lancing and beyond to enjoy the great outdoors for many years to come.”
“The has been a real team effort - and I want to thank ward councillor James Butcher, who was chairman of Lancing Parish Council at the time and asked Brighton & Hove Albion to fund this. I also want to praise the input of local youngsters who had a say in the design and location of the scheme.”
