Weston’s Tropicana will be home to a pop-up skatepark next week, and organisers hope it is a stepping stone to opening a permanent facility in the town.

Scooters, bikes and boards will take over the former pool, in Marine Parade, from Monday to February 16 for the inaugural Transend Skatepark.

The half-term event is being led by a collection of Weston churches.

Organiser Andy Skyrme said he hopes it will help create a thriving skate community in Weston.

He said: “The long-term goal is to open a warehouse for skaters in Weston. This is the first rung up the ladder, and the launch of Transend.

“We’re hoping to do pop-up skate parks in and around Weston throughout the year and we’ve got some exciting venues we’re in discussion with for the future.”

Advanced booking is required to enjoy the thrills and spills of Transend. To book visit www.transendskatepark.co.uk
