/// News: Boneyard Website & Promo ///

Just got this email from Jon Edwards (of Dig/Naive/Trail Kill fame!):

Hey Chris,

I know yourself and Valleyside have supported the Boneyard over the years. The place has gone through a lot of changes of late, all for the better and continues to improve and support all locally.

Just wondered if it would be possible to mention they have a new website up over at: http://boneyardskatepark.co.uk/ and a new promo video, shot by Andrew Lawrence: http://vimeo.com/36230655

Hope your well!

Kind Regards

Jon Edwards” …
