any child what their least favourite school subject is, and theyll
probably say 'History.. Its a load of bollocks.' We want to prove
different with our brief guide to Farnboroughs skateboarding history.
our lovely picture appeared in the local press. A man named Ian
Cocking read it, and was very happy to see that someone was actually
making a fuss over skating facilities in Farnborough.
He got in contact with Simon Venn, who told him of the quite wonderful
site you currently have the pleasure of viewing.
After a couple of guest book appearances Blakey asked Ian to come
and meet us at the quiz night down the Blam. Ian brought with him
an entire library of historical (in skating terms) pictures, magazines,
newspaper clippings etc. Each one more amazing than the last.
This page shows just a few of these pieces, which will show you
some of the history which Farnborough holds. Enjoy...
Thanks for all the pics Ian.. its been a breath of fresh air for
all us whippersnappers.

cliche here..) 'back in the day.'
