Roller skaters were keen to impress with their skills at the Christmas fun skate in Ely.
Cambridgeshire Artistic Roller Skating Club also welcomed a special guest Mayor Mike Rouse.
The event took place at the Paradise Centre on December 15 from 10am to midday.
There was games, prizes, a chance to learn to skate for beginners and demonstrations.
The two coaches for the team are experienced artistic roller skaters, with head coach for grades Rachel Hobbs, with Zoe King as head coach for our improving skaters or any skaters who have already passed all their basic skills.
