Tuckingmill skate park gets a facelift thanks to NCS youth

Comments (1)

TUCKINGMILL skate park has been given a facelift thanks to a group of youngsters who set to transform the area recently.

The teenagers, aged between 15 and 17, have been involved in the National Citizen Service (NCS) project to give back to the community within the Camborne and Redruth area.

One of the projects was to paint equipment, clean up rubbish and install vandal proof recycling bins at the skate park in Tuckingmill.

Aidan Reynolds of the NCS team said: “The skate park in its current state was not family friendly and there was rubbish everywhere and dog mess over flowing in the bins.

“We think our work has improved the quality of the skate park for longer and made it last a lot longer for future generations to enjoy.

“Our team was very enthusiastic about this project because it is in our local community and it will benefit not only our generation and the next but everyone in the community.”

    Pity the predecessors to Cornwall Council,chose to knock down all the mining remain and stick a playground here,they wanted the playground here,so now its up to Cornwall Council to maintain it,not some volunteers.
