Search for new skate park venue
A temporary Guernsey skate park used by hundreds of islanders over the summer has been taken down.

The facility has been based at the Grammar School car park over the past six weeks but had to come down for the start of the new academic year.

The Guernsey Xtreme Sports Association is now appealing for help to find an indoor venue where the ramps can be set up for use in winter.

The park was funded by Guernsey Electricity.

It was run by Guernsey Xtreme Sports Association members.

The park had various ramps and an area where more experienced skaters gave advice to beginners.

Some of the ramps were specially created for the Lib Jam extreme sports festival.

The Guernsey Xtreme Sports Association say the ramps will be put into storage if they cannot find an indoor location.
