A new skatepark at the Gayton playing fields was officially opened by West Norfolk mayor Colin Manning on Monday.

Gayton Parish Council were first approached by a local youth, who had a petition for support, saying there was nothing for his age group and that the skatepark at Lynnsport was too difficult to get to.

The council took on the project and applied to WREN and the Norfolk Community Foundation for grants. It achieved the grants and the installation of the skatepark was completed in July.
