A FAMILY'S hopes of building a memorial for their son have moved a step closer.

The fund - set up to extend a skatepark, in memory of Tomer Allen-Price - has reached its £45,000 target.

And dad Jeremy said he hoped the extension, at the Furzefield Centre in Potters Bar to include a new half-pipe, would be completed by June.

That will be two years to the month since the 12-year-old died in a car crash on Hawkshead Road, Welham Green, on his way to his Brookmans Park school, Chancellor's.

Hertsmere Borough Council has offered £15,000 funding towards the extension.

Jeremy, of Potters Bar, said: "We are hoping it will be completed in June.

"We are just waiting for the final designs to be put forward, and we will put a few designs up for consultation at the Furzefield Centre."

That will be an opportunity for the skaters and BMX bikers who will use the skatepark to come along and choose their favourite design.

Jeremy added: "All the money has come through fundraising events and donations.
