UPDATE! Pro BMX rider and local skate hero, Josh Fountain from Chi-Rho SkatePark Ministry met with Cr Tillman and Cr Maguire to check out the demolition progress of the Dalby Diplock Skate Park. Watching on as it turned to rubble, they're all pretty keen to see what next month brings with fresh new concrete. Can't wait to see the community shredding it up alongside Josh in a few months time! ~ WDRC Comms Team #watchthisspace
