Skate lessons are back free of charge on Friday evenings term time 4 – 6pm at Gasworx Skatepark. The first session 4-5 is for beginners. All equipment can be provided and are suitable from age 5 upwards. Kay Wardle the coordinator explained “The lessons encourage young people to learn to take turns, share a space, face new challenges publicly, and pick themselves (or others up) after a fall. Getting children involved in a personal and esteem-building activity like skateboarding helps them build the confidence to do well in other aspects of their lives.“
Lessons also run in the school holidays and are listed on the BTC website and the Gasworx fb page. Building on the success of previous competitions the next SkateJam is on Sunday 23rd July from 12 – 4pm. Admission is free, there will be music, BBQ, prizes, throw outs and lots of stickers! The competition will be divided into age groups.
As the Gasworx is an open facility we encourage younger park users to avoid the facility at busy times, to be accompanied by an adult and all users to ride within their own ability and wear appropriate safety equipment.
