The Saffron Walden Skate Group has purchased the helmets with money granted to them by the Uttlesford Youth Initiatives Working Group.

The helmets are also available from the secretary of the Skate Group, Jane Clarke, on 07967 444321. It is recommended that skaters wear helmets and other protective gear at all times when on the skatepark.
The group has also been awarded funding to provide first aid training so that young people can feel confident in dealing with a casualty until professional help arrives. This is important training which they can take into the community as well as using on the park.
