    In particular the youngsters who live in Millbrook and on the wider Rame Peninsula thoroughly deserve this new and exciting facility. It will undoubtedly enhance their well-being, sense of community as well as provide something to be proud of in the area where they live.
    Congratulations and heartfelt thanks to the Project Team and Parish Council for their vision, leadership and hard work.

    This is such a great example of a community project and it’s great to see the continued support of the Parish Council towards it. I am excited to see how the park will be used by so many people in the community and the hope for different elements that will encourage more girls to use it too. Well done to the whole project team.

    Very excited for a new skate park – we took up roller skating during the lockdowns and it made a huge difference to our wellbeing to have outdoor space to use. Would be great to have something fresh for the community for future generations as well as us who just want to enjoy being active outdoors!

    I fully support the funding of this skate park for our community, it will be such a great attraction for our village. Skating is good for people of many ages and brings communities together in an out door environment. Amazing work from all the people involved in gaining the funding for this project

    Millbrook needs recreational facilities the whole village can feel proud of and the young people of the Rame Peninsula deserve this investment.

    The support from the parish council, local businesses, adults and children of the Peninsula has been a joy to behold. What a great place we are lucky to live in and for our children to grown up it. The new and improved skatepark will bring visitors from far and wide putting Millbrook firmly on the skating map.

      Skateboarding has always been a massive part of my life, leading me to make some of the best friends and memories I could ask for, and it is all thanks to Millbrook skatepark being there as a space I could use nearly every other weekend for the past decade. A new skatepark will help bring a new lease of life to the space and will benefit both the newer and older generations alike. Well done to everyone involved in this project

    I can’t believe how far this project has come. It’s so exciting to think that this time next year, we could have a new skatepark and will put Millbrook on the Cornwall/ Devon skate safari map. Skating is so important to our children, great exercise and social activity, and I have always been so impressed what a great culture skating promotes – how skaters, young and old, really help each other out at the skatepark.

    I 100% support the project. The previous skatepark was well used, despite its design and age. The new design and concrete construction will be unimaginably better for all users; skateboarders, bmxers, scooter riders and spectators, as well as for the village as a whole. Skateboarding sometimes gets a bad press but having been a skateboarder and heavily involved with skateboarding for 30+ years I can honestly say it is an incredibly friendly and inclusive community, and is such a good thing to learn and have fun with.
    Massive thanks and respect to Sandy, Hetty and all for their huge effort, and also to the Parish Council for their support, and to all sponsors for their donations. Can’t wait!

    So good! This is just what Millbrook needs, this skatepark will attract loads of passing trade and people will come to experience the new and improved park 🙂

    Well done everyone

    Brilliant effort by the Parish Council & skatepark team. Children have few community resources in the area as it’s remote & rural. They deserve this so Rame can continue to be a great place to grow up and start a family. So good to see the community come together to make this happen

  39. Nancy Gray, Clerk, Sheviock Parish Council

    Sheviock Parish Council fully supports this project. It was agreed at the October 2022 meeting of Sheviock Parish Council that this facility would be well used by the children of Sheviock Parish, as per previous years, to benefit their fitness/social interaction and wellbeing. Sheviock Parish has an Open Space and Play park but no skateboard park of its own. Therefore using the power of S137, Sheviock Parish Council awarded a grant totalling £132.30.

    Couldn’t commend this project more. It’s an incredible achievement to get this project to where it is (well done team) and shows the strength of our community. Let’s get it built!

    I strongly support this project and commend the Parish Council for their continued commitment towards it. The redesigned skateboard park will replace a well used facility and provide a valuable focal point in the community for a range of generations to gather and to develop and learn skills collaboratively. A community that plays together stays together.

    It would be great to have a updated Skatepark. My son and his friends have thoroughly enjoyed using it for the past 15 years at least!! It’s also brought them to Millbrook many many days which means more spending in the local shops and now pubs!

      I have been involved in a small part with the steering group offering technical advice
      I am not a skater but have been hugely impressed with the inclusive nature of skateboarding and am convinced that the new park will not only be a fantastic facility for the youth and adult community but will raise the profile of Millbrook itself
      Huge thanks for the support received from the Parish Council to date, let’s get this done

      I think this is a fantastic project for Millbrook and the surrounding the area. On top of the obvious physical benefits, the community spirit around skateboarding is a massive bonus for the participants, young & old.
      Congrats to all involved so far. Build it, they will come!
