The owners of Rush Skatepark have ended months of speculation by announcing they will cease trading in the summer.
In a statement on their website, they wrote: “As many of you will know we have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to keep Rush Skatepark at Brimscombe Port and we would like to thank those of you who signed the petition, wrote appeal letters to the Council and have offered assistance to help in our quest to find new premises.
“Unfortunately, despite our pleas the council refuse to allow us to stay at Brimscombe Port whilst a developer is found. It is therefore with great sadness that we must inform you our last day of trading will be Sunday 29th August 2021.
“Session bookings will be taken on a two-weekly basis (this also includes lessons). Hopefully from 19th July, when restrictions are relaxed, we will be able to hold a few events to celebrate the last 8 ½ years trading at Brimscombe Port. However, session bookings and lessons will continue to be on a two-weekly basis until closure.
“Don’t worry, we will continue our quest to find new premises and hopefully in the future there will be an even better Rush Skatepark. We would like to thank you all for your continued support. Kind regards, Rush Team.”
