AT last!A skate park in Knutsford has been lacking for years.

There have been, for a long time, pockets of youngsters trying to practise their sport, in various areas of the town, on unsuitable surfaces.

For our new mayor, Cllr Andrew Malloy, to look at helping these talented youngsters is indeed good news.

Not only would a ‘park’ enable skills to be honed and displayed but the activity makes for a good spectator sport.

A facility like this could bring Knutsford up to par with many towns of a similar standing. A win, win situation.
