More news, no ads


The fifth annual Stansted skate park jam was dubbed "a resounding success" with competitors thrilling the crowds with their boarding, skating and bike skills.

Sunday's event at the popular Lower Street venue was watched by more than 100 people under blue skies and with minimal wind to aid the 75 entries.

Village riders took on entrants from as far away as Kent and Northamptonshire with "an amazing age range" from 10 years old up to those in their 40s.

Organiser Sean Tompson said: "Everyone taking part had a massive smile on their faces and the evening after the jam I received numerous messages from participants and parents telling me how much fun they had, how they were already looking forward to next year's event and thanking everyone involved for putting it on."

He added that the jam would not have been possible without the generous support of village businesses, Yeoman's Cafe and Mix Wine Bar, who had contributed towards the running costs and the brands that had donated prizes.
