Let’s Roll Community Interest Company was founded by Amanda Henry and is the predecessor of a two year community roller skating project which began back in 2011 in Langthorne Park E11, London Borough Waltham Forest.
Amanda and her three children frequently roller skate in the local park, this came about after having discovered that there were no services or facilities for non-aggressive roller skating locally. Langthorne Park provided a safe space with suitable smooth ground surface, which is ideal for roller skating. Over a short period the presence of roller skating in the park gave many other children in the area an alternative sport to become skilful and keep fit at the same time. Before she knew it a small roller skating group had formed whom she taught to skate.
With extensive knowledge and experience of project management Amanda had a vision to revive roller skating in the community by organising a free roller disco for all ages to enjoy. Amanda who at the time was a member of Friends of Langthorne park voluntary group supported her ambitious plans.
