Campaigners who helped restore a popular Keith skate park to its former glory has urged more people to join the committee to ensure the park never falls in disrepair again.
The town’s Cuthil Park skating facilities had been deteriorating for years before locals stepped up to improve it and ensure youngsters had somewhere to skate and bike.
In 2o18, the park undergone a £86,000 revamp and reopened thanks to the community.
Now the Keith Rollerbladers, BMX and Skateboarders group (Kerb) has issued a rallying call for more people to join the committee ahead of the group’s AGM next month.
Secretary Nicola Paton-Cruickshank warned that “no committee” could mean the end of the park that attracts youngsters in their droves.
Mrs Cruickshank said: ” There are only three members on the committee and it would be super to have more adults on board to dish out the load.
“At the end of the day if there isn’t a committee – there is no skate park.
“Three of us have been on the committee for around six years and we aren’t going to be here forever.
“We are needing more people to start helping organise fundraisers and keep the project to preserve the park going.
“Not everything is about having healthy funds and it is about having the people to come to meetings to support what the kids love.
“Each night around 30 to 40 youngsters use the skate park so there is no doubt it is popular.
“We are looking for parents of youngsters to join and we want to show people what we have been doing over the years.”
The group are holding their AGM at The Loft on Friday, October 2 at 7pm and more information is available on their Facebook page.
