Labour Cllr.Judy Dalton has taken over as Chair of the Anston Skatepark Committee-after helping to engineer the removal of Independent Cllr. Thornton from the post-to build a new skatepark or upgrade the existing skatepark for local youngsters. She is also helped by a resident of Woodsetts Mr.Myles Manship. ‘Skate25’ is the provisional working name for the group which according to Cllr.Dalton needs to raise approximately £60,000 to complete the work. http://www.worksopguardian.co.uk/news/local/anston-kids-unite-to-enhance-skate-park-1-6539087 . Myles Manship was overheard in Woodsetts saying it will probably cost £300,000 to build a new skatepark. What is the true figure? Cllr.Dalton has not presented any costings so far to APC for discussion by the Parish Council and residents. This is a serious discrepancy-£240,000 is not pocket money. A new or improved skatepark is needed but in the real world plucking figures out of fresh air is not the correct way to present a proposal for funding. Money for the skatepark can be obtained via grants from external bodies-If the proposals and figures make sense. Time for Dalton to step up to the plate and tell us what the true cost will be?
