Nestled away on the edge of the New Forest is this gem of a Skate Park, newly built by Maverick Industries. The council and local stake holders worked tirelessly to fund raise and bring the skate park community together and they have excelled. Sk8 Safe were asked to train a group of key users on their Level 1 Skate Park Community Ambassadors course before it opened.
Sk8 Safe’s team of tutors and photographer received a warm welcome from the New Milton community. They all basked in the glorious sunshine for the pop comp and skate breaks which were well deserved as the young people worked hard to shape the future of their park.
Councillor Humphries had this to say about the day:
"As one of the local councillors involved in supporting a move for a replacement skate park in NM, I have learned a lot about the people who use skate parks and what an asset skate parks are to a community The training day was really good because the team who presented it were so in tune with the young people who use the skate park. It was fun, inclusive and very informative. It was delivered from experience and knowledge. where everyone who was in the room was made to feel valued and important. Good stuff guys".
