This month saw members of the public gather to enjoy the Haydon Wick skate park during the half term, for another successful Skate Park event.

Friday 17 February saw the second action-packed Skate Jam event of its kind held at Haydon Wick’s skate park since it opened. 

The parish council hosted the event in conjunction with ATB Skate Shop, who provided the music snacks and various competitions. 

Among the prizes handed out on the day were a skateboard deck, and scooter wheels and grips.

The parish council team said the popular event was well attended, and feedback has been very positive with everyone saying they want to see the event happen again.

Cllr Rebecca Ross, Chair of the Community Development Committee at Haydon Wick Parish Council said: "It’s great to see local young people enjoying the skate park and participating in such an enjoyable event. Skating and scooter riding helps young people keep active, build confidence, and stay active. The Parish Council hopes to hold more events like this at the skate park.”
