Nailsea's popular skatepark festival will take place a week earlier due to a clash with another significant event in the town's calendar.

The festival was due to take place on June 15, but organisers decided to bring it forward one week due to a date clash with Nailsea Junior Football weekend.

Nailsea Community Skatepark Festival will now take place in Millennium Park, off Brockway, on June 8 from 1-5pm.

Festival director Phil Williams said: “The skatepark team always tries to work with the community in order to avoid event clashes wherever possible, and as the event has huge interest from many of those also involved in the football, we decided it would make more sense to change the date (of our event).

“Significant progress has already been made towards the day, and as well as the action on the recently rebuilt skatepark, which will include skateboard, scooter and BMX competitions, there will be numerous stalls and activities to participate in and, of course, lots to eat and drink.”

It is the 17th year of the festival, which continues to grow in size and popularity and organisers are looking for more volunteers to help on the day.

Organisations can also book a stall to showcase the activities they offer to people in Nailsea and the surrounding area.

Phil added: “The event is run purely from local funding donations and takings on the day itself, both of which we are extremely grateful for.

“If you would be interested in becoming an official sponsor or would like to find out more details of the opportunities that exist, please contact me.

“We are also looking for a potential sponsor for a generator for this year’s event.

“Huge thanks for all those already involved in the planning of next year’s event, particularly those from Holy Trinity and Trendlewood churches, Nailsea Town Council, Nailsea Community Trust, Christians Together in Nailsea and all the individual volunteers who will be giving up their time.”
