The Ventnor Skate Park Group are raising funds to build a permanent concrete skate park on the site of the current skate park on Ventnor seafront.
The park was set-up in 2001 by a group of skateboarders and mums. They saw a dwindling provision of youth services in Ventnor and took matters into their own hands. Since it's construction the wooden ramps have needed constant repair and maintenance, which has been completed by a committed group of volunteers. In 2015 The Ventnor Skate Park Group embarked on a mission to raise £50,000 for the construction of a concrete park. Creating a more sustainable park and a unique public skating resource for Ventnor and Island boarders young and old.
On September 9/10th the IOW Enduro 2017 team are completing a 2 day endurance challenge. This will encompass 28 miles of running and 110miles of cycling over 2 days covering the length and breadth of our beautiful island. There are 10 of us in total, made up of a core group of born and bred islanders and their friends from the mainland. Last year we travelled from North to South Devon over two days and have moved proceedings to the IOW this year. As part of the challenge this year we're raising money for this deserving Island charity. Please donate what you can.
