We need your support ......
Feb 18th Update:
Hi everyone, we hope you and those close to you are safe and well.
We hope to be able to re-open Skaterham around 1st April and look forward to seeing you all again.
Our back garden ramps are now near the end of their usable life.
They were only supposed to be a temporary measure but their popularity meant we just kept adding new ramps.
Sadly, the frame beneath has partly collapsed and harsh winters / heavy use has taken its toll on these "all wood" structures.
We will fix up for this year one final time but we need a more permanent and universal solution.
Our proposal would be to get rid of the existing ramps and put in a concrete base. We can then think about adding a canopy so it has all year round use, and then think about what this new space can offer.
Skaterhams home is a community building so we are trying to offer multi-use activities for our local population.
Our latest offering will be group exercise when we re-open for adults and kids.
What would you like to see in this new space?
- Perhaps you love concrete bowls
- Are you "street" and would really like skate-able street furniture, stairs and ledges
- Do you like other sports? How about using the space for football, basketball or tennis
- Are you more into alternative use..... could the space be used for markets, craft sales, car boot sales etc?
The picture below is a mock-up of how it could look.
We need your support--- the more votes we get, the bigger our chances!
First we need you to "agree" with our idea as we want to apply for £250,000 from Surrey County Council to make it happen.
