We had had a further update from the KSI. Here it is:
‘We are nearly there with the skatepark but the weather is playing havoc with bringing in the final loads of concrete and when we do get a load in it takes ages to go off and harden.
That is why we have been keeping quiet.. We don’t want people coming on to the concrete before it is properly hard – it often looks hard but it’s not ready to skate. It’s quite difficult to tell sometimes!
The park is complete except for the floor slabs which, if we are lucky and the weather is not too bad, will be poured this week. If we get all the concrete into the park this week then we can’t open it for skating until the following weekend – i.e. the 16th Nov. If we have to wait to finish pouring concrete until next week then it may be the following weekend before it is open.
It has taken so long to get this skatepark and I know that there are lots of people just waiting out there but please, if you could let everyone know that another couple of weeks isn’t that long to wait. If we have to rework any bits it will take even longer!’
