Following a lengthy discussion with the Cabinet member for Leisure Services Councillor Ray Hassall today I am delighted to inform you that he would not support the locating of a Skate Board park in the Queslett Nature Reserve.
He was adamant that the Queslett Nature Reserve is just that a Reserve and totally concurs with the view that a Skate Board facility would be detrimental to the reserve.
Council Hassell who know the reserve well has shown that common sense rather than Politics still matter when it comes to the interest of the wild life and those who use the Queslett Nature Reserve. Council Hassall also believes the Perry Barr option for a local skate Board is a good one given all the circumstances
It is now to be hoped any rumours that the Reserve will have a skate board will be squashed.
