Covers supports new skate park

Published:  15 October, 2014

The Bognor Regis depot of Covers Timber and Builders Merchants has recently supplied materials for the brand new skate park on Oldlands Way.

To create the ramps and quarter pipes, a large amount of good quality timber was needed, which is where Covers stepped in.

The skate park is the brainchild of two local parents who were desperate for somewhere for their children to practice their skills. The British weather doesn’t always lend itself to outside activities, so they set their sights on finding a suitable site and contacting various parties.

Through hard work, determination and help from local businesses, The Base Skate Park successfully opened earlier this month.

Janina Cooper, one of the mothers who started the idea, said: “We’re all so happy that our dream for somewhere dry and safe for our kids to play has actually materialised. It’s been really hard work, with lots of paperwork and phone calls, but now it’s open and we’d all like to say a big thank you to everyone involved for making this a reality.”

Sean Clarke, Covers’ Bognor Regis depot manager, added: “The local community is incredibly important to Covers, so we are always happy to give a helping hand when we can. The skate park is an amazing place for local kids to have fun and grow their skate-boarding skills – a fantastically positive idea for Bognor.”
