More than 160 people went to a fundraising day to save Rugby’s indoor skatepark, formerly known as Sidefix.

The park in Wood Street closed last month due to high running costs, and plans to re-open as a not-for-profit organisation.

The event, organised in partnership with Second City Skate, raised £1,500 and included a skills competition, bouncy castle and a raffle.

Former Sidefix owner Ness Page said: “We had an amazing turnout and it was a fantastic day.

“There was a raffle, a competition for people to show off their skills, merchandise for sale and a bouncy castle.

“People could just come and ride too, so we had plenty of interest.

“We’re hoping to arrange some more fundraising events soon and will continue to try and restructure the park into a not-for-profit organisation.”
