Skate winners show confidence and style
THE Suffolk Skate Competition was threatened by rain, but skies cleared just in time.
Byron Youth Service along with Byron Skate School have been running these popular youth events for years.
Organisers said the skate comps prove this is a legitimate sport, which young people take seriously.
