That reminds me of my secret plan to become a megabillionaire by opening a skatepark filled with awesome bowls that are filled with plastic balls in nets during the off-peak times so that all those bored mums sweating through their days doing 'the toughest job in the world' can offload their dribbly little kids into the ballpark whilst I sell them overpriced fluffy milk with coffee in it until the skaters turn up and I just shoo out the yakking mums, pull on a rope, the balls go up into the rafters and I can sell overpriced fizzy sugarwater to the folks getting all sweaty grinding the bowlage.

Absolute winner of an idea. Must remember to check nets each evening for accidentally captured toddlers (and inform said mums, who might by then have noticed a smaller number of children gaping at Line of Duty). Also not sure what to do about inevitable slippy film of child snot/wee on bowl surface.

Nevertheless, I shall see you all at Mar a Lago once the wonga begins to roll in.
Doesn´t like decks with dolphins or Bob Marley painted on.

Ha ha. Yes exactly. But there is a skatepark in there somewhere under all that foam.

The last update on their website was July 21st: Salford council have given them the go ahead with the plans. Can't see it being open in October this year as originally intended though.
