SKATEBOARDING pals Ashley Hall and Robin Bannister have turned their hobby into a business – and opened a cafe, shop and meeting place for Sheffield’s skateboarders.

Simple Skatestore, Aberdeen Court, off Division Street, fills a gap in the market, according to Ashley, from Stocksbridge.

The 22-year-old, pictured, said: “Sheffield has a huge skateboarding community – we have skate parks at Millhouses Park, Parson Cross and Devonshire Green as well as other areas across the city – yet there hasn’t been a skate shop for a good few years.

“We’re hoping to create a real hub because most skate shops serve as meetings points for skaters too.”
