Work has begun building a skatepark in Edwinstowe following a 12-year campaign from village youngsters and the parish council.

Youngsters first got the backing of Edwinstowe Parish Council for the development in 2001, but after a number of false starts, planning was finally granted for the newly-named Jubilee Park in the village.

The building project, which will now take between seven and 10 weeks to complete, will include grass banks to reduce noise for nearby residents, while remaining visible to target possible anti-social behaviour.
