A little about us

Skate Norfolk is a Not for Profit group, formed to help children develop skills and fitness. It is run by a company limited by Guarantee Everything Leisure Ltd

When we make a profit this will be handed to a charity of the same name and used to provide free places, run sessions for children with learning difficulties or disabilities, or even assist with transport from rural villages.  

Volunteers

Without the help of all the volunteers we could have never kept the price stable at £4, in fact without out their support there would not be Skate Norfolk

A BIG THANK YOU GOES TO..

We appreciate every volunteer, but without the help of Jemma, her mum Alison and younger sister Esther I am not sure what we would have done.  A very special ‘Thank You’ from Ian.

Can you help our some weeks?

volunteers – can you spend a few hours some weeks. If you are not a skater you can help children fit skates, take the money on the door, serve tuck,

Wanted teenagers who can help the younger ones to learn to skate, we will teach you.

Over 21s who can drive the van to some of the sessions to cover holiday and sickness.  

Could you help with admin or marketing?  We have a desk in a Norwich office, If you think you can help us call Ian 01603 920227

Children under 4 are welcome as toddlers can learn to skate once they have been walking a couple of months  If they only skate for 30 minutes a session see Ian for a special deal.  

Unsure if skating is right for you and your children?

Come and try for 30 minutes, if it is not for you or your child return our skates we will refund your entrance fee and skate hire. You do have to register and agree to our terms  required for our insurance

In 2018 we have 3 targets:

1   Carried over from 2017. To build a small fund over the winter to cover our loses in the summer. Completed 

2 – To see if we can recruit volunteers or self-employed organisers to run more sessions

It seems a shame that the equipment, van, insurance etc. are only used 4 times a week and even less over the holiday periods.  Finding the right person or people is far from easy, but we keep trying.

3 – To recruit a temporary organiser

We also need someone to occasionally cover my role, it could be a separate driver with someone else to run the session, or one person doing both roles.

We have been ask to provide 2 different sessions, we are looking at both

Adult keep fit skating

We are looking for a suitable venue early evening for 2 hours.  It needs to be a reasonable sized hall, ideally on the south side of Norwich as the interest has come from the UEA and hospital.  

Home Schooled Children

See our new web page for details STARTS January 2018

Can older children and adults skate?

Yes everyone is welcome if they accept that most skaters will be younger.  We have people who come to 1 or 2 sessions to learn the basics.  We suggest adults purchase wrist guards.
