Ron Hogg, Police and Crime Commissioner for Durham had a guided tour of the Darlington Gymnastics and 4 Motion Skate Park facilities on the afternoon of Friday 29 November.
Darlington Gymnastics Club and 4Motion is a new group for wheeled sports who have teamed up to find a large building on the Faverdale Industrial Estate in Darlington, suitable for the needs of both clubs and that could be transformed into an indoor skate park and gymnastics hub.
The event called ‘Come and see it before is totally transformed’ included a short presentation on progress of the project to date and a tour of the building. Mr Hogg also had the opportunity to meet some of the young people involved.
Commenting on the visit, Ron said:
“I was pleased to have been invited along to see how the work of this project is progressing; it will be an excellent community facility and a great place for young people to go. The groups involved are doing a fantastic job and they are an example to other community groups across County Durham and Darlington who are trying to achieve similar goals.”
