Skating for the whole community
RetroSkate (GY) Community Interest Company was established to the provide the residents and visitors of Great Yarmouth a dedicated roller skating venue. The status of the CIC means that we provide benefit to the community and is a form of Social Enterprise. We are also not-for-profit so invest all resources in improving the service and benefit we provide.
Great Yarmouth has a vast history in roller skating and has produced more national champions as a percentage of population than anywhere else in the country. The loss of facilities, some 30 years ago came as a great shock to the town as it was still extremely popular. Small artistic groups struggled on by using community sports halls, snatching time when they could. RetroSkate has developed from one of these sessions run by North Sea Rollers with the collaboration of 4 people who bring together a wealth of experience and qualifications in both work and roller skating. We are passionate about roller skating and the many benefits it brings its participants at all ages and levels. It is also an activity that the whole family can participate in. Plus, Its FUN!
We also work in partnership with the charity Trust In Sport, a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, to the enhance the lives, education and well-being of the residents of Great Yarmouth and the surrounding area. For more information please visit their website www.trustinsport.com
