Chris Davison, the owner of Scene Preston said: “The skating scene is a growing scene in Preston and I think it has maintained a moderate level. The skate parks have been around for 3 years and have really helped build the scene of skateboarding and allowed other skaters to come together and meet others and it’s quite a community thing. The skating scene is still slowly growing.”
