Skate­board group tack­les graf­fiti at seafront shel­ter

Bray People - - NEWS -

MEM­BERS OF Bray Skate­board­ing As­so­ci­a­tion rolled up their sleeves last week­end to give Bray Tidy Towns and CoastCare a hand.

The task was to paint over some graf­fiti on the small shel­ters on Bray seafront last Sun­day morn­ing.

Tidy Towns noted that the graf­fiti was not the work of the skaters. There was a great turnout of skaters and other vol­un­teers on the day to tackle the job.

Some of the vol­un­teers then man­aged to get a bit of a skate in af­ter all their hard work. This project, they said, was a chance to get in­volved and give some­thing back to the com­mu­nity by giv­ing the shel­ter a facelift. It looked as good as new when they were fin­ished and the skaters said that they were proud to im­prove the town’s en­vi­ron­ment. They are not per­mit­ted to skate in that area, how­ever, and plans to build a skatepark have run into a se­ries of road­blocks.

The fund­ing is in place, but the coun­cil is strug­gling to find a lo­ca­tion. In De­cem­ber plans to con­sider build­ing it at Peo­ple’s Park were aban­doned due to pub­lic out­cry from res­i­dents of that area. The mat­ter was on the agenda for Tues­day’s meet­ing of Bray Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict and the club will have re­ceived any up­date on the mat­ter at the time of read­ing.
