SOME of Britain's top skateboarders, skaters and bikers will be in Wealdstone on Sunday for a "jam" to mark the official re-opening of Harrow Skatepark.

The council has spent £60,000 improving safety to get endorsement from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents for the park in Byron recreation ground off Christchurch Avenue. A users’ group is being set up to help manage the park.

Built in the 1970s, it is one of only a few concrete skateparks left, and is described by many users as one of the best in the country.

The chairman of the Metropolitan Police Authority Lord Toby Harris and Harrow East MP and Minister for London Tony McNulty will perform the opening ceremony which will be followed by a demonstration by skaters and bikers, including professional BMX champion Mike Langston.

The public can use the facility from 1.30pm.
