To Skateboard or not to Skateboard?

There is a lot of talking about Skaters and skateboarding in front of firstiste. To do or not to do it?

A public notice has appeared in the public space in front of firstsite: due to severe damage to seating, skateboarding is no longer allowed in the area. Skaters started their own petition to be allowed back on to the site but public opinion remains divided. To Skateboard or not to Skateboard? Young people, solicited by Essex Youth Bus (which spends Friday afternoons in front of firstsite) are discussing it. The question seems to be: do people know street-culture? How can the general public be better introduced to it?
