We were invited to The Mayor's Parlour at the town hall in Carrickfergus on 29th October.
We met with Mayor Alderman Billy Ashe to discuss the image of parkour in the town of Carrick and what could be done to make it better and more accessible for young people who want to do it.
We discussed the possibility of holding a large event in the coming weeks and showed Mr Ashe our T-shirt design, which we created with the help of Fixers.
Baring our message, ‘Be Free To Run Free’, we intend to wear the T-shirts at the event.

After our story was featured on UTV Live, viewers shared their support for our Fixers campaign on the station's website.
'My son and his friends do parkour and I think it's brilliant. It keeps them fit and it is a talent that should be recognised. These boys train hard and it should be encouraged. So a place for them to do it would be fantastic.'
'What a fantastic bunch of young men. They obviously know how to do this safely. It’s a delightful change to see something like this in Northern Ireland.'
'Well done to these youngsters. They are showing others that there are better things to do with their lives. Train hard and be safe lads. The council should build a place for these youngsters to practice. A BMX park was built for the bikers to go to. Maybe there could be competitions.'
