Old Oak Community & Children’s Centre’s Funday, takes place in Braybrook Street from 12pm to 3pm  today, Saturday June 21, and is open to all.

The Funday will include the official opening of a BMX bike track on Wormwood Scrubs.

Sporting charity Access Sport has built a track on the Scrubs in Shepherds Bush at the underused recreation and play area near Woodman Mews, and created a new BMX riders’ club.

The Funday will also feature a farmers market, bingo, horse and carriage rides, a smoothie-making bike, a mini café for children and a bouncy castle. There will also be a football tournament, 5k run, a wildlife walk and a family cycle ride led by a trained team from the Hammersmith Community Gardens Association.

The new BMX track is open to all BMX riders for free but BMX club members will be given priority access to develop local talent.

The club will run as a social enterprise, offering coaching, free bike use and equipment hire, bike maintenance events and outreach sessions. The project is being paid for through housing trust Affinity Sutton, Sport England and Olympic legacy funding.

If you are interested in finding out more about the BMX club, including how to join and volunteering opportunities, email Adam Thomas at Access Sport on
