A great skate with mates
SOUTH Petherwin School playground was turned into an outdoor skatepark for the joint school PTA and parish council Autumn Fun Day.
All morning children aged from 3 to 13 on bikes, skateboards and scooters had a go on the various ramps, supplied by the New Horizons Outdoor Leisure Service.
A delighted Theo Hoskin, 8, said: "I loved it! Please come again!"
Phil Parsons, who organised the event, said he was pleased at the success of the partnership with the parish council and PTA.

"We were blessed with perfect weather and the children kept both the New Horizons officer and myself busy all morning," said Mr Parsons.
"New Horizons offer the mobile skatepark for a set fee which includes an officer, insurance, BMX bikes, skateboards, scooters and safety gear.
"We try to include all ages and allow all abilities to have a go. It's wonderful to see the children's confidence grow as they travel up and down the ramps."
He thanked head teacher Tim Gray, the PTA and New Horizons for their support.
