Campaign created by Duncan Smithson

Work with a constituted group to encourage a DIY sports facility on part of the disused land formerly known as the Little Oasis Crazy Golf course. To work with us to re-build a safe park that the community can engage with. To support the rebuilding of the skate park and applications for funding.

Why is this important?

On Thursday 27th March, Thanet council bulldozed our local community built skatepark with no notice, now they need to work with the local community to re-build it.

Thousands of locals have spent time using this free community facility. Skating can bring together communities and encourage a positive outlook on life. If we work with Clive Hart we could create a safe family friendly community resource in one of the most deprived areas in England.

    An area of high deprivation is trying to build something positive and controlled for youngsters to do. That should be supported and applauded.

    It is the job of TDC to help young people and to help minority groups achieve positive aspirations - not bulldoze their hopes and challenges.
