Milly Jam 2014

Yes we’re on again – Milly Jam is back on the 17th May 2014 courtesy of your friendly neighbourhood regulars with the backing of Friends of Millhouses Park. Thanks very much to all those people doing their bit to make this happen.

Plan is pretty much the same as last year but if it rains Onboard have offered to host us so we don’t have to try and delay until the weekend after.

Registration will be 10am onwards at the skate park

Rough Plan from then (timings very approximate):
11.00 – Scooter Jam
11.30 – Pre-teen Skateboard
12.00 – Pre-teen bmx/bike
12-2pm – High hop/Ollie
2.00 – Teens Skateboard
2.30 – Teens bmx/bike
3.00 – Teen+ Skateboard
3.30 – Teen+ bmx/bike

– Joel Culf on the mic for BMX
– Will Lester’s on the mic for skate with some help when he needs to
– James Folkes is on sound/pa system with help from Ed Astill
– Toby J will be handling registration duties
– Prizes: We’ll be begging for prizes from all the local businesses who have provided us with such good support in the past: The House, Slugger, Lives & Levels, Waller BMX, Bike Tree, J E James & Onboard. Plus, The Skateboard School are lending us their support this year.
– The comp has finished for this year’s Limited edition T-shirt design which we’ll sell to to help cover costs and hopefully raise funds towards further improvements to the skate park
– St John’s first aiders will be on hand in case you scuff your knees

See you there!

Milly Jam 2012!

A HUGE success this year – and what amazing weather! Here’s some photos from the event…

About 1000 attendees at Milly Jam encouraged the riders from 11 am though until 5 pm – check this video by Jack James Higgins…

(Whilst we do our best to ensure that external links are suitable for you to visit we remind you that we have no control over the content of other websites)

Another huge success and our thanks go to Geoff Hibbard and his team who organise the event … perhaps in time for next year his voice will be back!

Results will be posted here later in the week – watch this space!

Sheffield Star Cycleway Article

The Sheffield Star has published a great article on our new Kid’s Cycleway! See what you think – click here!
The article was also printed on the front page of the Gazette this week – so some decent coverage. The cycleway has certainly been getting some good use since Christmas – it seems that lots of children got bikes this year!
