SKATEBOARDERS took over East End Park's Norrie McCathie stand as it was transformed for a day.

The stand concourse at Dunfermline Athletic's stadium became a fully functioning skate park using portable ramps and obstacles provided by Nike SB.

The event was organised by Route One Edinburgh and was hoped to bring attention to a bid by Dunfermline Regeneration Trust to modernise the city's skate park.

Rory Fell, who is involved in the project and is the assistant manager at Route One, previously told the Press that Dunfermline Skate Park had been "left to rot" and that around £300,000 was needed to bring it up to standard.

He is also the founder of the Boards for Bairns charity, which aims to provide skateboards for young people who may not otherwise be able to afford their own.

Rory, who won the Young Enterprise of the Year award at the Dunfermline Press and Central Fife Times Community Champion Awards earlier this year for his charity work, hoped the East End Park event would both highlight a need for a new skate park in Dunfermline, and encourage more people to get involved in skating.

He said: "It went amazing, huge turnout and great feedback from everyone.

"People came from all over Scotland and one kid even came from Newcastle to take part!"

Those interested were also able to attend free skate lessons under qualified Skateboard GB coaches before a competition with prizes on offer.
