Illegal skating rink bulldozed

AN ILLEGAL skating rink and other obstacles on its lands at Graeme Hall, Christ Church, were destroyed by the Ministry of Agriculture yesterday.

The ministry said that the structures were discovered a few weeks ago when officials were touring the lands at Graeme Hall.

However, Paul Wilson, who was part of a group of skateboarders, BMXers and roller bladers, who used the skating rink, said they had actually been there for seven years.

“We were looking for a safe and secure area where we could skateboard and one day a friend of mine told me about this spot. We went and looked at it and realised that it was being used as a dump. We cleaned it up and started to build and erect obstacles and structures,” he pointed out, adding that over time they built concrete structures as well. (MB)
