WATCH THIS SPACE!
So… i went over to bristol for the go skateboarding day thing they had going on and met up with the trowbridge boys and then some of the old bristol heads… i have some photo’s to come, but for now… a little edit i whacked together.
i currently live with no internet so big props to my lady for letting me steal her internet for a bit and to my work colleague jesus for taking my shift.
Heres a short little edit filmed over the summer months to warm your cockles.
I went to London last week a couple of times, on one occasion i got to go have a morning skate at Southbank and was glad to see it hadn’t bee suddenly covertly boarded up. This has been a fear of the locals (with some staging vigils at one point) since word of the redevelopment plans came about.
However the guys behind the campaign have managed to win their bid to Lambeth Council to have it listed as an “asset of community value”, meaning the local council have to take that into consideration when considering planning but also gives the campaigners the right and opportunity to purchase the site should it come up for sale.
One other thing I was told about was a plan to have it “village green” listed, meaning it would be preserved from future development, but from what I understand the maintenance and upkeep of the area would fall upon those who used it. This would be ideal however seeing as all the locals really care about the spot that could honestly be hailed as one of if not THE birthplace(‘s) of British skateboarding.
A Southbank spokeswoman is quoted in lasted Wed’s Evening Standard as saying they still “want to move the skatepark” so the campaign could still face some tough challenges, with this in mind head on over to the Long Live Southbank website and sign the petition, buy a t-shirt and show some support to help SAVE SOUTHBANK.
Here are some other pics I took…
