Dorchester Skatepark Jam

Stunning tricks and stunts are on the bill at this weekend's Dorchester Skatepark Jam.

Skateboarders and BMX riders will be showing off their skills in front of big crowds at the Dorchester Skatepark from 11am this morning, hoping for a ticket to perform at the NASS Action Sports festival in Bristol next month- a massive event on the extreme sports calendar.

Skateboard and BMX related gear will be on sale at the event from a whole range of professional suppliers and there will be giveaways and freebies available as well.

All admission is free and organisers are keen for people young and old to join in.

The event was due to take place in April but was rescheduled after weather worries. Steve Newman of Dorchester Town Council says he's confident that the event will go ahead and be a success.

'The town council are pleased to support the event and I'm very confident that there will be a high calibre of sportsmanship on show.'

The event, supported by the council, has attracted sponsorship from many local companies. Sue Mitchener of Maverick Industries, who design and build skateparks like the one in Dorchester, said they were excited to be involved with the event.

'It's a great example of when a Council works in partnership with a community group and the local police. There are many talented skaters and riders on the scene who have honed their skills on the Dorchester skatepark and it's great to watch them show off their amazing talent.'
