Summer Skate Park Sessions in Brackley
Young people will have fun and learn some exciting new skills during a series of skate park sessions in Brackley this summer.
Delivered by qualified instructors from Team Rubicon, these sessions are for young people aged 11 – 19 and cost only £1.
This money will be put towards a new permanent skate park facility in Brackley.
There is also a chance to take part in a number of graffiti art workshops that run alongside the skate park sessions.
Councillor Rosie Herring, SNC’s portfolio holder for community engagement and wellbeing said: “We know there are some keen skateboarders in and around Brackley and here is a chance for them to improve their skills and have fun at the same time.”
There is no need to book, just turn up on the night with your scooter, bike or skateboard as per each session - helmets must be worn.
