Youngsters should get their skates on as the mobile skate park and i-van will be rolling into villages across Aylesbury Vale to provide free fun from 18 January.
The popular On the Road scheme, organised jointly by Aylesbury Vale District Council and the i-van project, is designed to bring healthy fun to 10 to 16-year-olds in small rural communities.
The skate park consists of ramps, an angle grid box and fly-off platforms, while the i-van has an ICT studio which can be used for music making, film, animation and photography.
There will also be street dance sessions available at the venues with indoor facilities, giving girls the chance to get in shape, learn the latest dance moves and meet new friends.
Councillor David Thompson, Cabinet Member for Leisure, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for young people in rural areas to use facilities that wouldn’t normally be available to them. We hope as many youngsters as possible take advantage of this equipment when the skate park and i-van travel to their area.”
Parking up from 6pm to 8pm, the skate park and i-van will be at Westbury Pavilion on 18 January, Stone Recreation Ground on 25 January, Drayton Parslow Village Hall on 3 February, Brill Recreation Ground on 8 February and North Marston Village Hall on 24 February. Street dance sessions will take place at Westbury, Drayton Parslow and North Marston.
