PCC re-visits new Gymnastic Club and Skate Park Facility in Darlington
Ron Hogg, Police and Crime Commissioner for Durham returned to the Darlington Gymnastics and 4 Motion Skate Park facilities on Friday 28 March, to see the progress that had been made on the project since its opening in November 2013.
Darlington Gymnastics Club and 4Motion is a group 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 club.
Commenting on the visit, Ron said:
“I was pleased to have been invited back to the indoor skate park to see how it has progressed since my last visit in November. This really is 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”
Nigel Potter who is leading the Skate Park project said:
“It was great to have Ron back and we’ve really appreciated his support and enthusiasm for the Skate Park. Without the support of the Police Commissioner and many others we wouldn’t have been able to achieve so much”.
The Skate Park opens on Saturday 5th April at 10am and more details can be found at www.4motiondarlington.org/skatepark
