One of the country’s top professional scooter riders took to the slopes at Corby’s Adrenaline this month, treating our service users to their very own front row show.

Jayden Sharman, a regular visitor to the Corby skatepark – the largest of its kind in Europe – showed off his skills and tricks to visitors from Teamwork Trust, our Northamptonshire day service provider for adults with learning disabilities, autism and or mild mental health issues.

Sam Farrow, Autism Transition Lead at Teamwork Trust, said: “Our service users from Kettering and Corby had a phenomenal afternoon out and were treated to an awesome demonstration by pro scooter rider Jayden, ranked one of the best scooter riders in the UK.

“We were shown round the three main buildings and the outside area and also watched riders take on The Airbag, an enormous airbag landing new to the Alley that enables riders to test out their skills and tricks. It’s the only one of its kind in the UK.

“We even had the chance to sample some of the fine milkshakes served in the American style diner there. Thank you so much to Adrenaline Alley’s Marketing Director, Harry Tucker for showing us around the site and arranging for the demonstration.”

Service user Peter said: “It was really good, and I really enjoyed it. It was amazing to see how high the ramps were.”

Jonathan said: “Absolutely brilliant and I’d love to go again. We saw a professional who was amazing and many other talented people. The staff there were very helpful as they showed us around.”

Adam said: “I really enjoyed the skateboarders, everyone was quite brave.”

Charlotte added: “It was exciting and adventurous. It was so nice to see so many different age groups giving it a go! They were very skilful. All the staff were extra friendly too”
