Skaters converged on the Alfred Major Recreation Ground to take part in the annual Summer Skate Jam.

More than 20 people took part, with judges assessing skaters in a variety of categories on Saturday afternoon.

The Skate Jam has been put on annually since 2013.

The overall winner of the event was Connor Ashcroft, 15.

One of the organisers, Jay Brickell, 21, a Cookham resident for 17 years, was pleased with the turnout and the quality of the skating.

He said: “The jam was chilled out and a lot of fun.

“We had a lot more younger skaters than previous years which was great to see. This event is so important for the youth of Cookham to enjoy in the summer after exams and the school year is over.

“The bank holiday weekend was always going to be a challenge with many people on holiday, at Reading Festival and Timbertown, but we pulled off the event and it was a great success.”
