A SKATEPARK Jam will be held on Saturday, September 13, from 11am to 3pm after being given the go-ahead by councillors.

Youngsters from the Streetspace group asked councillors if they could hold the community event at Lower Henson Park at Chard Town Council’s planning committee meeting on Monday night in the Guildhall.

A second date, in case the weather is bad, was agreed for Saturday, September 27.

There will be a barbecue, a bouncy castle, fire and rescue displays, stalls and fun for all the family.
