Heading into Autumn
Wow, it is suddenly September and what a summer it's been! We may not have had amazing weather but we have had a fantastic summer of skate building and meeting you lovely folks in the shop. CLASSES ARE BACK!! Our classes are starting up again and our great team of coaches are rested up and excited to support you with your skating once again.
Go check out the blog on our classes! We have so many exciting classes and events to share with you.
Skate Love Barcelona 2023
Soon we'll be heading out to Skate Love Barcelona for skating with friends, attending workshops and just having an all round great time. Before we go though we had a lovely evening at Leeds Corn Exchange to catch up and share tips with other skaters heading to Skate Love. Afterwards shared some delicious tapas! It's got us all so excited! We can't wait to jet off and once we get home, share all we've learned <3
Back to Project House...
Following our great Roller Disco at Project house at the beginning of the summer, we got invited to join Project House at their Everything Market at the end of August. Mel loved getting the opportunity to share her joy of skating with the visitors of the Everything Market and getting to know other small business owners.
We love working with the super Project House team and have some exciting news...Roller Girl Gang will be back at Project House for another disco in the future!
Watch out for further details, this is definitely something exciting to be added to your skate calendar.
At Roller Girl Gang we hate to see skates unskated on or wheels still in their packaging. We have carefully looking through our stock and where we have end of line skates, wheels or plates which we feel are ready for a new home, we have put them in the sale! To see more of our deals as they arrive, follow @rgg.skateshop on Instagram :)
