      london, United Kingdom

Many of us professional skateboarders rely on Southbank to practice for our livelihood.

As well as being a mecca for skate boarders all over the world this is a very important place for many people, not to mention the added value the park and professionals bring in terms of tourism.

The proposal to move the skate park means it is not regarded as equally important as the the other cultural facilities at Southbank. It shows skate boarders are being marginalised and it proves that Southbank strategy is elitist and not serving local people.

Many young local people start skating here, it is a social meeting place as well as a place for sport and artistic talent.

To:
Lambeth Council, Southbank Centre, Boris Johnson, Arts Council England
Stop the relocation of the skaters at Southbank's undercroft

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I have had a long love affair with Southbank, the skate park is part of the DNA of the area and it needs to remain. I'm now lucky enough to work in Southbank too and my sprirtual home must retain its character, I want my son to be able to enjoy the park when he's graduated from his micro scooter!

      I'm not a skater, but as long as people who are skaters can do it, they have one less reason to feel miserable in a tough old world.
