It All Began Here at Sands Skateboard Park Holmfirth
  • In memory of Isaac Mason Atkinson (1998-2012)
who we are
Who we are
  • We are a group of young adults who live in Holmfirth and are trying to raise money to improve our local skatepark.
  • Just after the group was formed we lost a main member and dear friend, so we are carrying on the project in his memory.
what we would like
What we would like
  • A skatepark where everyone in our community, of all ages, can come together to experience the excitement of skating.
  • A skatepark that provides an environment where children can converse and share the events of the day.
  • A skatepark to be proud of and share with other children outside of our community.
reasons why
Reasons why
  • The population of the skateboard park keeps growing and there isn’t enough space for everyone to have fun without it being a safety hazard.
  • It will bring the young people in and around Holmfirth together and be a safe area away from shops and houses.
  • Parents would feel safer and happier if their children could skate in Holmfirth instead of having to travel to other areas.
  • It would be in memory of our dear friend Isaac, who was a keen skater.
how it would benefit the community
How it would benefit the community
  • If there was an exciting skateboard park, the young people would feel less inclined to use public car parks and stairs to get the thrills of skating.
  • Older members of the community wouldn’t feel as threatened by skaters using pedestrian areas.
  • It would encourage more young people to exercise, be sociable with others and be out in the fresh air.
