Volunteers working to improve Ottery Skate Park have been recognised for their hard work with a ‘community project of the month’ accolade.
The scheme is run by VOYC Devon, an organisation that works with voluntary groups across the county that help and work with young people.
Members chose Ottery Skate Park Group as its latest recipient to recognise members’ efforts over a 10-year period.
Mark Goodman, chief officer for VOYC Devon, said: “We support small charities like the skate park. They have been one of our members for a number of years now and it’s good to recognise the work they are doing.
“Elli [Pang] has put here heart and soul into it. It is entirely voluntary and they support the people of Ottery who have a passion for skateboarding.”
