TH: I HAVE GOT A NEW IDEA FOR THE SKATEPARK !!!! I will be putting an application into the council for a porta cabin to be sited at the skatepark. We will use it for bike repairs, selling our wristbands, t-shirts, hats, stickers, bike & scooter parts BUT NOT DRINKS, SWEETS & CRISPS. Also can be a shelter when open.
I DON’T GIVE UP EASILY, YOU CAN COUNT ON ME.

No Funding for the Tuck Shop! – Brentwood Share Fund

Well it is BAD NEWS for us regarding getting money from Brentwood Share Fund for a tuck shop at Brentwood Skatepark.

This is the email I received.

Dear Tina,

RE: REQUEST FOR TUCK SHOP ADJACENT TO SKATE PARK, KING GEORGE’S PLAYING FIELDS

Further to your request and application to Brentwood Councils Community Share fund to establish a tuck shop at the above location, I can advise that sadly your application to the share fund and the request to establish a tuck shop has been unsuccessful.

Officers and members that viewed your application felt that despite its obvious positive merits there was a clear conflict with the existing cafe facility in the park and that this could have a negative impact on the established operator at this location. It was also felt that it would be difficult to overcome an legal challenges due to the nature of the contract between the Council and the contractor.

I appreciate you will be disappointed by this decision but the Council will strive to continue to support the Association where it can to move forward with developing the skate park for the future.

TH; VERY BAD NEWS EVERYONE, Just got this…
