Blakeney Community Green is now the proud owner of a new all purpose skate and cycle track for children and teenagers.
The project is part of the recent regeneration of the area. The track was funded with a grant of Â£4700 from Gloucestershire County Council's Active Together scheme. The "brains" behind the whole concept was well known local community activist Rose Peatey. Rose commented " This is a great open space where youngsters can skate and cycle in a safe environment"
UKIP County Councillor for Blakeney, Richard Leppington said " I was delighted to be able to help Rose. She has done such a lot for the community in Blakeney. She is a real unsung hero"
In the pictures are Rose Peatey, County Councillor Richard Leppington and Lawrence Kettle and staff who were the contractors for the project.
