Youngsters are learning new tricks after helping to design their own skate ramp.

The ramp, at Culverstone Recreation Ground in Wrotham Road, is designed for beginners and intermediate skaters and was opened by Gravesham mayor Cllr John Caller.

Kent wardens Mandy Cason and Jacquie Fuller, along with Gravesham council’s sport and recreation officer Danielle Lock, worked with the community to get funding from Gravesham council, Meopham Parish Council and a Gravesham Communities and Neighbourhood grant.
