Holiday sports activities

SPORTING youngsters in Standish will have plenty to do over the summer holidays after a programme of events was announced.

Thrill-seekers will be able to get their adrenaline rush as the Ramp Riders mobile skate park will return to Standish.

Youngsters will be able to bring their skateboard or BMX bike down to test their skills, and extreme sports champion Neil Dans will also be in attendance at some of the sessions to pass on some expert tips.

The Ramp Riders sessions begin on Wednesday, July 25, from 12pm until 3pm and are open to anyone under 18. There will be a £2 entry charge.

Enthusiasts for the beautiful game also will be catered for with a soccer school being run on Standish Rec, located on Southlands Avenue just off Green Lane.

The sessions will run on Friday afternoons, beginning on August 3.
