SkateparkBendcrete a specialist skate park manufacturer has now completed the work on producing Pocklington’s first playpark. The park is on the Queen Elizabeth II playing field on West Green and comes after years of campaigning by local youngsters. Part of the funding for the work has come from WREN the waste recycling organisation and applications have been made to the ERYC for some developers fees to also be allocated to the project.

Additionally the charity fund run by the Humberside Police Commissioner has granted £3,000 towards the scheme.  Whilst the park is now being used Pocklington Town Council are  speaking to nationally renowned skate boarders with the intention of holding an official opening featuring demonstrations of their skills later this spring.

This is an unsupervised site so care should be taken when using it.
