BMX, scooter and skateboard competitions are being held at a family fun day and picnic at Meadow Park on Saturday, June 17, from noon until 4pm.

The new committee has organised the event to the celebrate the facility after stepping in to save it following an appeal for more volunteers.

There will also be exhibition riders, stalls, live music and a barbecue. All ages are welcome.

Local councillor Tim Adams, who organised the public meeting to put together the new skatepark committee, said: 'Our aim with this isn't to generate loads of money, but to have a great day really.
