Sussex Police donation helps renovate skatepark

Wealden Police has donated £500 to Mayfield and Five Ashes Parish Council to help with the renovation of the skatepark.

A group of about 25 youths approached the council with a plan to extend the park. Since the initial plan they have been awarded a lottery grant of £10,000 and raised £5,000 by themselves.

Chief Inspector Emma Brice presented the cheque to the group, who hope the development will provide a higher standard of skating equipment.

CI Brice said: “It is great to help out young people and help provide a fun and active environment for them to be out in.”

The donation comes from the Police Property Act Fund (PPAF), made up of monies received by the police from property confiscated by order of the court and then sold.
