A grade II listed skatepark in Hornchurch hosted a BMX event in a bid to bring the community together. 

Held on Saturday, July 10, the Rom Skatepark organised the BMX jam after the park’s closure throughout the pandemic.  

BMX rider, Mike Hullock, took home the pro competition first prize of £1,000.

A spokesperson for the park said that the event provided an opportunity to boost the park’s reputation as a “unique experience” for all the family to enjoy. 

They said: “The jam was a roaring success and an incredible day unlike anything we have ever hosted before.
