Buckingham Town Youth Council is bringing a skateboard competition to Buckingham in June.

It will be held on on Saturday, June 22, in the Bridge Street skate park, and it will be divided into three main categories – skateboards, BMXs and scooters.

Team Extreme, a company which specialises in demonstrations, competitions and coaching will be organising the competition on behalf of the youth council.

There will be a nominal entry fee of £1 and parental permission forms will need to be filled in for young people to take part.

Deputy mayor of Buckingham, Lisa O’Donoghue, said: “We need you to express your interest and take part to make the event work, so please get in touch.

“We also need at least three judges, so if you are a pro skateboarder, BMX rider or scooter rider and understand the technicalities of these sports, you are just what we need,”
