360 Flip Showcase to celebrate the very best of Bishop's Stortford Skate Park
Skateboarders, scooter riders and BMX bikers will be showcasing their skills in support of Bishop’s Stortford policing team’s Lives Not Knives crime prevention campaign.
The community officers have teamed up with Bishop’s Stortford Town Council, East Herts Council and the teenagers and young adults who regularly use the Sworder’s Field skate park.
The 360 Flip Showcase is taking place on Saturday (Sept 28) from 11am to 1pm. It will give visitors the chance to see the regeneration proposals for Castle Park and how the skaters helping shape the plan to develop a new skate park for future generations.
PCSO Jordan Tooke forged a relationship with the group when the public outlined Sworder’s Field as an area of anti-social behavioural concern during the police’s priority setting forum in June.
Jordan found that the youngsters were eager to engage with him and enthusiastic to get behind the police’s nationwide anti-knife campaign.
Officers will be giving away freebies promoting the operation. Brave Arts, an experienced street artist, will be further publicising this initiative by adding a design to Stortford’s graffiti wall, which was installed in 2012. He will also be running ethical artwork workshops.
The Hertfordshire Basketball Association will be putting on activities and the Love Stortford team, made up of members of Churches Together Bishop’s Stortford, will put on a barbecue to feed the masses and offer support to people struggling with mental health and addictions.
