A NINE-YEAR-OLD skateboarder has been presented with a skateboard deck completed with his own design after winning the Holmes Chapel Village Competition.

Noah Hankey, from Holmes Chapel, won the skateboard design competition, which was launched following the opening of the Skate Park in May this year.

The Skate Park at Holmes Chapel Community Centre, Station Road, is available for scooter, skateboarders and BMX users and was officially opened on May 6 by PCSO Jill Cope.

Jill died in August after a battle with cancer and the skate park will remain her main legacy after she worked alongside Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School pupils to raise £25,000 for it.

The younger members of the community were involved in the design of the Skate Park and Holmes Chapel Parish Council invited the youth of the village to provide designs for a skateboard to celebrate the opening.

A spokesman for Holmes Chapel Parish Council said: “Our thanks to South Cheshire Print for producing the Skateboard. Noah can either hang the deck on the wall of his bedroom or fix some wheels on the deck and use the board on the skatepark.”

All entrants in the completion also won a voucher to the value of £5 to be used for snacks and drinks in the Community Centre café.
