Opening of Kingsbridge play area and Skate Park

It was a real privilege to be asked to cut the ribbon at the opening of the Kingsbridge play area and the skate park.

Having seen the site under construction during the campaign and heard about the extraordinary efforts of so many in the community to make it happen, it was wonderful to see it so full of children on a beautiful sunny day.

Cllr Mike Howarth thanked all those involved and then I joined the prime movers, Cllr Anne Balkwill and Wendy Bolt in cutting the ribbon. After a walk around the Creek it was a real pleasure to be able to open the skate park and watch an impressive demonstration.

If you have not been to Kingsbridge recently, take a look. With its vibrant high street and farmers' market and the transformation brought about by Kingsbridge in bloom, it is a wonderful place to visit. The play area in memorial park is outstanding; children could not fail to enjoy it. I just hope they have more success than I did at staying on the roundabout!
