Ice Rink to be closed throughout summer holidays

Unbelievably, Telford & Wrekin Council has chosen to close the ice rink for refurbishment today and it will stay closed until October.

This means that the ice rink will be closed during the school holidays, not only depriving local families of a popular venue during the six looooonnnnnng weeks of holidays but depriving the council (and ultimately the Telford taxpayers their money comes from) of a valuable source of income at what must be the ice rink's busiest time of the year.

Serious questions need to be asked about why the decision was made to carry out refurbishments to the ice rink at one of its busiest times of the year.
