Dear Sir,

I am writing in regards to the recent advertisement about the new skate park. I cannot believe that Craven Pond is going to be filled in!

My friends and I are extremely angry that the council are thinking of building a skate park.Don’t people realise that hundreds of different kinds of birds, insects and fish live here? What will happen to them if their habitat is taken away? We all know that natural habitats are disappearing at a worrying rate. It is our duty to preserve as many of these as we can.

Adults are always telling us that we should use our time productively. My friends and I have spent many weekends and summer evenings studying and cataloguing the wildlife of this pond. If Craven Pond is filled in we will be forced to hang about the streets because there will be nothing to occupy our time. Is that what the adults want?

Yours sincerely

Tom Dipper
