During the summer months the Town Council provides free skateboarding lessons on Friday evenings term time 4pm – 6pm at Gasworx Skatepark. The 1st session 4pm to 5pm is for beginners and 5pm to 6pm for intermediate skateboarders.
Lessons are led by Mr Paul Regan of Active Skateboarding, equipment can be provided and sessionsare 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 and Skate Jams are_also run in the school holidays. Dates and details_will belisted on the Bridlington Town Council website www.bridlington.gov.uk and the Gasworx_Facebook
page as and when events are organised.
As the Gasworx is an open, unsupervised 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. For more information email email@example.com or call 01262 409006
