TEAM VALLEY DIY
Spearheaded by Dave Apomah #ShredTheNorth is a grassroots skateboard movement trying to raise the profile of skateboarding in the North-East with a focus on community.
Originally applied for the DIY Fund for Moongoons, but the spot was no more following a successful application, so found another spot named The Valley DIY, just 10 minutes from the original location. In August had the news that the new spot was likely to go, so discussed donating the remaining funds to either to the new Durham DIY or start up a new DIY somewhere else in Newcastle. Funds still remain for the latter.
Proactive individual supportive of the scene in the NE, coordinating many projects and events and in conversation with Durham council. Keen to work further with us on #PassTheTorch and online coaching courses.
