Save The Halfpipe At Ryedale Skatepark

My name is Ryan Swain like many I have been using the Ryedale Skatepark since it began in 2001 over the course of 20 years. It's an asset to the local community and the younger generation within the area. It's one of the only things in the Malton area left for the younger people to do and go to for free. It promotes multiculturalism, develops social skills, it's a great networking hub for youngsters to meet new friends and learn new skills and also be proactive.

Some of the local council are opposing the skatepark, it's lease and denying the funding to repair one it's most iconic pieces the Halfpipe. This Halfpipe is one of it's kind originally a display ramp at Alton Towers at one time was the only outdoor one in the UK that was free to use. Professionals have travelled far and wide to have a go on it
 So it has heritage.

Councillors Di Keal and Steve Mason are working closely and hard to save the skatepark and the Halfpipe but we need the public and the local users to stand up with us and speak on why it's so important and why the skatepark is an asset to the town.

As you can see this ramp is in dyer need of refurbishment as it has been left to rot over the years and have numerous patch ups by the council which is costly and not affective as it should've been relayed and repaired many years ago properly.  

I am asking you all to come together with us on this and raise as much money as we can as well as awareness to not only repair the ramp and the park but secure it and it's lease.  

Please DONATE & SPONSOR and save the pipe.

Thank you
