Clitheroe’s skateboarders are gearing up for another winter of thrills and spills at a special indoor track at the town’s St Mary’s Centre.

The indoor facility at the centre in Church Brow is run by The Grand, based in nearby York Street, which owns the popular outdoor skate park in the Clitheroe Castle grounds. The team from The Grand helped run a similar scheme last year to provide local skaters with a safe and weather-proof facility.

Three two-hour sessions will be held at the center each week, from 4-30 to 6-30 pm and 7 to 9 pm on Saturdays and from 4-30 to 6-30pm on Sundays.

There will also be a family session once a month, staged on a Saturday, from 3 to 4 pm.

Justin Willis, who helps run the skate park, said: “Hundreds of skateboarders use The Grand’s facility in the castle grounds, and many of them enjoyed coming to St Mary’s last year during the winter months.

“We are holding more sessions this year, so hopefully we’ll see even more skaters down at the indoor circuit.”

There is a small cost of £2 per session and skateboarders can just turn up on the day. The indoor sessions begin this Saturday, November 16th.
