Swanage skatepark group to host summer community day

THE Swanage Skatepark Community Project (SSCP) is holding a fun and free action-packed community day this summer.

King Ramps of Bournemouth is hosting the event and will bring a pop-up skatepark street course to fill the empty space in Swanage Skatepark.

It will also provide skateboards and safety gear for anyone who does not have their own.

Richie Inskip, from King Ramps, said: “King Ramps is really excited to be working with SSCP and the local community.

“We will be hosting workshops throughout the day as well as demonstrations with our King Ramps Pro team.

“We will also be holding contests throughout the day for scooter, BMX and skateboard.”

Thanks to funding from local charity #Willdoes, entry to the event, use of equipment and access to lessons is free.

James Woodford, from SSCP, said: “We hope to show just how valuable a resource the skatepark is and get everyone behind our long-term goal of raising funds for new ramps.

“The event will increase access to skateboarding with free beginner lessons for all age groups – adults are welcome, too – and guidance from coaches

“It will be a fun day to make new connections, hone skills and be entertained by demos and competitions.’’

The Community Day aims to improve social inclusion for teenagers and young people in Purbeck.

The #Willdoes Community Bus will be at the event to provide a safe space for young people to meet and access information and support.

The Swanage Skatepark Community Day is on Saturday, June 1, from noon to 5pm.
