Organisers of Nailsea Community Skatepark Festival are looking for more volunteers to help with next year’s event.

The skatepark festival is one of the biggest events in the town’s calendar and the 16th spectacle is set to take over Millennium Park on June 15 next year from 1-5pm.

The contest is hugely popular with enthusiasts – attracting BMX, scooter and skateboard fans from right across the South West region.

Preparations for next year’s spectacle are well underway, but organisers are looking for more volunteers to offer support on the day and sponsors to help with some of the costs and equipment.

Festival director Phil Williams said: “As with any event such as this, the organisers are really keen to increase the size of the team as the event grows.

“If you have enjoyed the new skate park while watching your children and teens, and would like to give something back through helping, that would be fantastic.”

The skatepark festival will feature skateboard, scooter and BMX competitions throughout the day.

There will also be numerous activities to take part in, along with food and drink and stalls to browse.

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, so 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 in particularly 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.”

Organisations will be able to run stalls to showcase their activities and forms will be sent out to previous stallholders next month.

Anyone interested in volunteering, running a stall for the first time or alternatively sponsoring the event, can contact Phil via email at phil@christiansurfers.co.uk
