Church to become Skate Park for Half Term

Date: 30 October 2013
A DIOCESE OF GUILDFORD CHURCH will open its doors to a different sort of board meeting during half term.

St Paul's Church in Addlestone will be turned into a Skate Park for three days during the autumn half-term, and is welcoming anyone in Year 4 and upwards keen to hone their half-pipe skills to a range of sessions from Thursday until Saturday November 2.

Ramps, supervision and tuition will be provided by Sutton Ramp Events. There will also be open freestyle sessions and periods for scooters and boards only, along with dedicated times just for girls. Bikes are not allowed.

Reverend Andy Reid, curate at the church, said: “St Paul’s has been an active part of the community for 175 years.

“To celebrate this, we wanted to do something special to bless the community. Half-term is often a time when parents are looking for things for their kids to do, and older kids are always looking for somewhere to hang out with their mates.

“Given that the weather is turning, we thought why not do this? It is very exciting.”

Entry will be £4.50 per session, but you can get three sessions for £10.50 if you book in advance.

PLEASE NOTE: All skaters will be required to bring a completed 'liability waiver' form signed by their parents, (over 18 years can sign their own form!)
