The skatepark was opened by the mayor of Seaford, councillor Nazish Adil, who was joined by representatives from NPS Lions and officers from Seaford Town Council.

Mrs Adil told the Express: “I thoroughly enjoyed the opening of the skate park at the Salts for the young, the old and the pro at wheel manoeuvring and skilled biking!

“Special thanks to CANVAS, Sports England, NPS Lions and Seaford Town Council officers for coming together and making this happen. It was a pleasure to see it being so busy and well used.

“I had a go at the bike myself and jammed to the spree of spirit and adventure! It was awesome. Happy skating everyone.”
