Have you heard the one about the Dip, just off Riverside Walk, one of Jedburgh’s beauty spots, which is used by mums and their young children as a play area, as well as by locals and visitors just out for a walk and a bit of peace and quiet, to watch the wonderful wildlife Jed has to offer?
Well seemingly, some bright spark councillor has decided to fill it in with concrete, costing around £120,000, and turn it into a skateboard track. That should bring the wildlife out on a Friday night.
Every local I’ve spoken to agrees that the best spot for a skateboard park would be the far end of the Glebe. A car park, toilets and changing facilities are already in place
