So what to do on a spring Friday evening, and then again on a Saturday with different people.. that is just as much fun as it was last night

I discovered, now  I really am the original old man Leslie… I’ve turned 50, and suddenly my memory comes back to me and I remember I have a blog…

What prompted me 11927487_1640732316183572_1100438273541966453_oto blog again, was a regular session at the roller skate venues I’ve been going to for a little while… I’ve been going for a while as they are that good.

 the first , and only because its on a Friday is in Lancing in West Sussex.

It’s called Starlight roller skating… And like all these places it has the usual Facebook, Instagram etc so you can find them…

What impressed me is the welcome I got when I first went, and still get  I’m not by any means the best skater, I try not to fall over … But I found out that I was skating with GB grade international quality skaters. Amazing ” Brighton skaters ” and generally friendly Peeps

I have to say even some of the children ( most of the children ) were better than me

I’ll drop back with some pictures sometime soon. But as I mentioned, West Sussex, Friday night … Lancing is the place, and just to save y’all looking

And for the record, I wasn’t paid for this entry, I just think if a place is good to tell people about it…

This is a cool way to spend a Friday evening, or if you prefer a Saturday evening Family skate, Where you can enjoy yourself. capture2Listen to classic skating Tunes, and that ” modern stuff ” as well. and you arewp-1489879181607.png a little further West. Head for Arun Leisure centre  

Even ” oldmanleslie”, as old as the hill hasn’t been at this one since the start, they began in 1977 and I guess they must be doing something right.

A regular Saturday night Skate with a good crowd. sometimes just what you need, And as per the Pictures ( historic events) themed disco nights.

So when you get stuck in a bit of a rut, and then the rut changes for the better…..

Anyone who knows me and the rest of my clan knows that Saturday nights are generally skating nights. We are fortunate enough to go to a really cool, old-school club that’s been around for 40 years…. Nearly as old as old man Leslie…

They play a mix of the same old tunes, they hire out proper 4 wheel quad skates. And they are so family friendly in their normal sessions.

Well, they recently decided to do the first( in a long time) adults only extra hour… What a brilliant idea…. Not too many people, music was just that little bit different and good. Same old familiar faces, all enjoying themselves.

So why blog this, well as it’s a holiday town we live in, and people could be down here in sunny Bognor for all sorts of reasons. If you are here on a Saturday night. Check out our local sports centre and ask about the Arun skate club, or find them on Facebook.

As I  mentioned, a great way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday night, and if you land at the right time. Then a great child free hour for mums and dads

To the organisers. A big thank you
