On Sunday 14th September the free Bearwood jam event will take place at Lightwoods Park skate park from 10.00am – 4.30pm.

Sandwell Council and Bearwood's Mr Tom Naylor are working together again in hosting the Bearwood Jam which is a free to enter / watch extreme sports competition being held at Lightwoods Park Skate park in Bearwood. The categories for each competition are Scooter, Skateboard and BMX with prizes going out to 1st, 2nd and 3rd places, plus more prizes up for grabs thanks to a host of sponsors.

So come along and join us, and if you can ride a skateboard, scooter or a BMX, then why not show off your skills at the jam. Anyone can enter but entrants will only be able to use the park at certain time depending on what competition entered. Just arrive 15 minutes before the competition start time to register, the times for each competition are:

· SCOOTERS 10.00 – 12.00

· SKATEBOARDS 12.00 – 14.00

· BMX 14.00 – 16.00

We have live music throughout the day with a headline act of DANTANNA who have recently been doing a lot for the Bearwood scene and will be performing from 4.00pm – 4.30pm. Other acts include DJ Craig Goodall, DJ Estee, DJ Nash and beat boxing extraordinaire SID FX.

We are looking for volunteers to help steward the event, register competitors for each competition at the registration desk and help to collect litter during the day. If you are interested in getting involved please come down to the skate park in Lightwoods Park between the hours of 9.30am and 4.30pm to sign in.
