A huge sum of £100,000 will be needed to realise the dream of setting up a skatepark in memory of Kirkburton schoolboy Isaac Nash who was tragically swept out to sea off Anglesey.

An extensive search for Isaac by North Wales Police and the Holyhead Coastguard has now been scaled down.

The sport-loving youngster, a pupil at Kirkburton Middle School, was enjoying playing in the sea at Aberffraw beach with his younger brother Xander when they got into difficulties.

His grandfather Paul heroically tried to rescue Isaac but he slipped from his grasp while the boys’ father Adam succeeded in rescuing Xander.

A meeting of the Isaac Nash Trust was held at Highburton First School this week to establish the logistics of making the skatepark dream come true.

It was attended by around 50 people including local councillors, Jim Dodds and Robert Barraclough and Kirklees Council officers. John Fletcher, (Kirklees Parks & Landscapes), said he was happy to help the group find a site.

Martin Ward who chaired the meeting said: “It’s an awful lot of money. It was a successful meeting and a committee was elected.

“It was great to see how the young people have taken this idea to heart.”
