People travelled from as far afield as Belfast, Southampton, and even France, for the launch, which included an amateur and a pro skate contest.

The outdoor plaza allowed skaters and BMX riders the ability to perform in a street environment.

The scheme was financed by £200,000 from Lincolnshire County Council and £100,000 from Lincolnshire Enterprise.
