Youths enjoyed gravity-
defying displays by renowned BMX riders and skaters at an extreme sports day on Tuesday.

The youngsters had a chance to work on their skills on the Low Fulney Field with help from expert coaches, and enjoy displays from some champs.

The BMX and Skate Jam, brainchild of South Holland District councillor Pete Williams, could become a regular event, as it attracted scores of children from all over the area.

He said: “It was great to see so many young people having a great time and I would like to thank Team Extreme for coming along and putting on a fantastic show.”

Coun Williams used his designated ward budget to fund this occasion and ,with some help from some other councillors and Tulip Radio, they hired BMX, skater and scooter riding professionals from the renowned Team Extreme.

Youths were provided with crash helmets and put their skills to the test in competitions to win vouchers from Gibbons Cycles.

Coun Williams added: “If we want to develop the day for future years we will need a small committee made up of all ages and I would ask anyone who’s interested to contact me now.”
