New skatepark is not in Gildredge Park

WE have just had the latest Liberal News-Sheet delivered, the headlines of one page stating ‘Skatepark Success,’ and saying local residents welcome the decision to put the skatepark area in Gildredge Park.

It also shows a picture of youngsters holding boards stating ‘support the Gildredge Skatepark.’

It shows how out of touch the local Liberals are.

They do not know the suggested location is in the Manor Gardens, not Gildredge Park, where most local residents would be quite happy for it to be.

I have yet to speak to anyone around here who agrees with it being put in the Manor Gardens, one of the few quiet spaces left in Eastbourne.
