Milly Jam Saturday 11th June 2011
On the afternoon of Saturday 11th June a new event, MillJam, came to Millhouses Park – a festival for Skate Boards and BMX Bikers in the Skate Park organised by Geoff Hibberd. It was well attended with between 700 & 1000 participants and observers throughout the afternoon. Everyone was entertained by good music, celebrity riders and local businesses.
Despite a few showers the park was kept dry and safe enabling the much practiced tricks to be cutting edge and spectacular – as were some of the failures!
Huge congratulations to Geoff Hibberd and his team for the organisation before and during the day and similar praise for all those taking part. Thanks also to the Community Assembly for helping fund the event, Sheffield Events for adopting the event, First Aiders on standby and all the days sponsors!
