Elected Skate Loughton Task Group held their first meeting.
Having elected the first six committee members at the last Skate Loughton open forum meeting the small group met today to progress the action of the group.
The first task set was for the relevant committee members to set up the group bank accounts. This has been done and we are now ready to receive donations towards this important project
The committee has continued with its preparations for the launch of skate Loughton at Roding Valley High school during the October half term
Members of the committee also gave a presentation to Loughton Town Council members on September 22 about the plans of the group. There were adult and youth representatives present and it was a very successful meeting. It was also interesting to see just how our town council works and how they deal with these issues.
The Loughton Town Councillors who were present at the meeting we attended have recognised the frustrations of the group in obtaining park location and have indicated a willingness to support Skate Loughton with its goal of obtaining a comprehensive and usable skate park that will also be able to be used by bikes and scooters.
Remember we can only do this with your support
