Market Rasen Town councillors are reminding locals that part of Mill Road playing field’s skate park is closed as it has been deemed ‘unsafe’.

Councillors at last week’s town council meeting (March 1) reported that signs put up at the skate park warning of ithe closure had been repeatedly removed.

They also discussed the possibility of replacing the skate park entirely with a different facility.

The council would like locals to get in touch with ideas on how the current skate park should be replaced.

Market Rasen residents are also being encouraged to view any plans at the Annual Town Meeting which will take place from 7pm on Wednesday April 26 in the Committee Room, Festival Hall, Caistor Road.
