kAGE goes skateboarding

09/06/2011
Today Nottinghamshire Police teamed up with NISE skateboarding by using a mobile skate/bmx park for young people to tackle anti social behavior and boredom throughout nottingham. The mobile skatepark was an idea thought up by the a community police officer on the denewood beat, nottingham so that young people who are interested in another sport instead of football and enjoy skateboarding and bmxing can take part in their own community instead of travelling miles to other locations in the county. Ben durnan fletcher, owner and founder of NISE skateboarding said "this is a great idea, there are already loads of skateboarders that are buzzuin about the mobile skatepark and I for one can't wait to get on it" The skatepark can be used inside a leisure center or outside in a carpark for skateboarders and roller blades or it can be used on grass for bmx and mountain bike riders. The community police officer responsible for obtaining the funding from capitol one following a 2year negotiation period said " alot of hard work went into obtaining this park, and if it wasnt for the persistance of myself and notts police this project would not have taken place. However, capitol one have been fantastic in seeing the benefits of this project and the capability of the park to help so many young people of all ages and I thank them." Dates and the locations of the park will be placed on this site and also on the NISE site. http://www.niseskateboards.com/index.php KAGE will be used to educate andoffer support for young people that are involved in the skatepark and all young people will be able to access this information with a view to keeping each other safe. For more information, please register on this site and regular messages will be sent to you with dates and locations.
