Cambridgeshire Artistic Roller Skating Club (CARSC) celebrated their second anniversary in style last week.
The club held a three-day event between August 2-4 in Ely and Littleport, consisting of fun activities and a special visit from mayor of Ely, Cllr Mike Rouse.
On Friday, Cllr Rouse attended a party fun skate in the morning, with all improved skaters and their families invited to an evening party consisting of garden games and awards were up for grabs.
During CARSC's first ever training weekend, participants learned about free skating and how to prepare for competition, covering elements such as sports psychology, anti-bullying, fitness and nutrition on Saturday.
Dance, ballet and performance training then took place on Sunday, including dance basics, manner of performance, clusters and improvisation.
