Respect in the park

I have witnessed the very young given a wide berth from the older ‘kids’ so they can skate in safety, as well as helping them when they fall.

These skate enthusiasts are outside, interacting with a wide range of people and ages and all in what looks like skate harmony.

Moreover, I enjoy the changing artwork from one year to the next.

My only gripe is the state they leave the place on weekends and school holidays.

The rubbish is strewn from the shop across to the park.

There is no need for this at all. It is not cool, it’s just lazy.

The bins are there so use them.
