Save Little Oasis DIY Skatepark

Save Little Oasis DIY Skatepark

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.

Reasons for signing

  • Support the youth!
  • Younger people these days already have next to no where to go - why bulldoze a skatepark?!?! Something that is used for sport, hanging out, making friends etc. A nice, community area that brings people together and keeps them out of trouble.
  • Save this skatepark! Everyone in the community benefits if kids/teenagers have a safe place to go and socialise and have a some fun. Its their basic human rights! Good luck Oasis people ;)
