Launching the Skatepark

19th August 2021

Launching The Mill

Skatepark 1

Launching the Mill has been a long time coming...

Over 15 years in fact; where a group of young people started campaigning and fundraising for a Skatepark in Sittingbourne.

In 2016 a business plan was submitted to Swale Borough Council ... and approved!!

Construction finally began in 2019, you can see the process on @themillskate on Instagram... and then the pandemic hit and launching The Skatepark was a no!

Over the last year, our youth team have organized activities over on the Skatepark, built relationships with those who regularly attend, we've even had a go ourselves! but nothing as big as this before!

Skatepark Celebration

We are really looking forward to a great day! We have Far Academy leading the displays, competitions, and tutorials all day, and alongside that also providing a screen printing workshop! We have the awesome Graffiti Stars workshop, where you can design a board and take it home with you. We have Funday Kent providing refreshments, as well as Miss Softee Ice Cream van and a Games trailer. 

The whole day is free - we just need you to sign up on arrival!

When you do, you will be entered into a prize draw (drawn at 4.30pm - but we'll get hold of you if you have gone)! We have an Altarskate x Deathskateboards complete board to giveaway, scooter accessories, t-shirts, vouchers, and much more! 

So come down to The Mill, on the 27th August 2021, 11-5pm (families welcome, although some activities are 8+), and enjoy the day celebrating & launching (officially) The Mill Skatepark, Sittingbourne
