Larksfield skateboard site to be improved

SOME £3,000 is to be spent on improving skateboard facilities for young people in Felpham and Middleton.

The money will be put into the Larksfield site by the area’s parish councils.

They have agreed to pool their shares of the new homes bonus which Arun District Council is passing on from the government.

Felpham councillors have agreed to seek a meeting with those from Middleton to discuss proposals for extra equipment at the facility off Pulborough Way.

The ideas will be put forward by Arun’s parks and open spaces officers but nothing will happen without the councils’ approval.

Paul English, Felpham’s chairman, said: “We need to see the plans and make a decision as to whether they are acceptable.”
