CARNOUSTIE councillor Helen Oswald recently met campaigners for a new skatepark at the current facility adjacent to Carnoustie Leisure Centre at the foreshore.

She has pledged her support to a campaign being run by Carnoustie High School pupils Kieran Bell (16), Andrew Patterson (14) and Ross Macdonald (14) who had brought along some of their friends to indicate how a properly researched and constructed facility would be well used.

Councillor Oswald has already contacted her colleagues in the town and has spoken with the director of neighbourhood services to see if the council would pledge a piece of ground for the proposed skatepark.
