The whole event went really well and the kids all enjoyed themselves. Thanks must be given to Loughton Town council for funding this event.

This was great Oliver LOVED it, shame it's only once a month, loughton should have a fixed permanent skatepark, there's loads if playgrounds for younger children but nothing for older kids.
Well done Paul it's a great start, thank you! 😊
