The project is a Ponteland Community Partnership initiative to provide a skate park for the young people of Ponteland. The skate park has been a long term wish of the youth of Ponteland and young people have been involved in the consultation process.

We want to create a skate park on an unused piece of land adjacent to the Leisure Centre on Callerton Lane alongside our present re-furbished play park that was opened last year. This would provide THE facility that the youth of Ponteland have been wanting for many years. Currently they have to travel to Hexham or Whitley Bay – journeys of up to 20 miles!

Our entry will be broadcast during ITV’s Regional News between 6.00 p.m. and 6.30 p.m. on Thursday 25th November 2010. Voting takes place by telephone on that day from 9.00 a.m. until midnight. The number will be available early in the day in The Daily Mirror, on this website, and later during the programme itself. It will also be displayed on the following website – www.pontelandonline.co.uk and also around the village.

To ensure our project succeeds we need as many votes as possible. There is a maxmimum allowance of 10 calls from any one telephone number. To achieve success we need the support from everyone for the young people who have been wanting and waiting for their skatepark since 1984!
