Designs revamping Sidmouth’s skatepark have been met with approval from users of all ages.

A drop-in session was held on Wednesday (January 16) at Sidmouth Football Club, inviting residents and users to take a look at the plans designed by consultants Maverick Industries.

Russ Holbert, a director from the company, attended to talk through the design which has been created following visits to schools in the area and the youth centre.

Users who dropped in said they were happy with the design and the challenge it seemed to present for all ability levels.

One young skater said: “I’d like a park that is good for all range of abilities.

“At the moment its quite beginner based, so we cannot really do things that are more advanced.”
