This New Year We Need Your Continued Support

Updated: Jan 5



We hope you had a wonderful and restful holiday period and found time for yourself and your loved ones. We've received lots of lovely messages through email, in-person and DMs on our socials checking in on our team too. This is EXACTLY why we are so proud to support and serve this amazing and caring community.


Right now, we very much need your help. (This is a message that we tell others all the time - ask for help when you need it - but in practise is so very difficult to do!)


Unfortunately, the last couple of months have seen us absorb costs far beyond what was expected. This has been due to many reasons - essentially times are tight! Our income in December was almost 40% less than last year, yikes on its own, but coupled with unexpectedly large increases with some fixed costs, like our public liability insurance - over 3 times more than last year - means double yikes!


You see why we need help?


Having said that, this is not a pity post! Far from it. We remain positive and upbeat that if we continue to put joy into the world, the right people will find us. We want to make roller skating as affordable as possible - very challenging when getting good quality products that will support your skating and allow you to develop as a skater have an initial higher cost. We are also very proud of our in-store service and will never pressure sell to customers in-store. We want you to have the right skates.

So, we have decided to hold the BIGGEST January Sale we have ever held. Please take a look at the sale page of our shop (as there is loads more). Maybe you aren't looking for you - but you spot something that is perfect for someone you know, or you're a member of a skate group? Please share (or buy haha!) anything you can! It would help us so much.


If you need more motivation to get out there and skate, while learning new skills and connecting with people, then please buy a copy of My Roller Skate Journey. This e-book costs £15 to download and we start on January 1st 2024 to delve into our first theme! We will be chatting about our skate journey in our Roll with the Gang private group, over on FaceBook, which is free to join. See you there!
