Welwyn Garden City has new sessions for skateboarding in the new year – following the summer skate jam success.
Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council's sports partnership officer, Milan Johnston, said: "Our Skate Jam sessions in the summer proved to be extremely popular with residents so we're very excited to be able to offer these courses with ABC Skateboarding, especially as the sport will make its debut at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
