Wheel Deal for Ushaw Moor

A pilot mobile ramp project which attracted approx 50 different young skater, scooters and bikers from Ushaw Moor and surrounding villages on a Friday evening came to an end last month due to the dark nights.  The project saw a number of  partners come together to help make the session possible with the mobile ramps loaned out by  Ushaw Moor Community Association.  Supervision was provided by Durham County Council’s Positive Activities for Young People team with the venue provided by the County Council’s Sport and  leisure team and the Deerness Gymnastics Club with funding from the AAP.  Over the winter period the Deerness Gymnastics club will be looking to host a weekly urban gym session to cater for some of  the young people attending the ramp project. The sessions will aim to improve balance, agility and fitness. Work will also continue over the winter months with local communities to examine the possible development of  a fixed wheels park that will cater for several of  the local villages.
