Lingham Skate Park, Wirral
Community-minded cops recently teamed up with Rampworx to provide a series of successful skate boarding events in Morton this summer. Funded by Magenta Living and Moreton West neighbourhood policing team, Lingham Park has never been so busy with enthusiastic young people keen to learn more about the sport.
Rampworx provided scooters and BMX’s along with their personal expertise during two workshops over the school holidays, teaching children who were mainly from Magenta Living communities.
Aged five and upwards, the boys and girls thoroughly enjoyed their skating sessions. Dominic Tulley Tenancy Enforcement Officer at Magenta Living says: “We know that the school holidays are a long time from a childcare perspective, so it is nice for us to support an event that not only gives the kids in the community something safe and fun to do, but also helps out the parents, grandparents and childminders out there!”
Police community support officer Moyra Van-Breenen, said: “The police and Magenta Living have clubbed together to put on these events for free for young people across the Wirral. Rampworx run skateboarding, BMXing, skating, and scooter workshops across Merseyside so its a great opportunity for young people to either take part for the first time or polish their skills.”
