Cllr Ken James Cabinet Member of Regeneration Planning and Sustainable Development said:

The council organises a number of festive events across the whole county borough, but this is our only ice rink and the attraction has become a very popular addition to our Winter events calendar. It is also a great example of how local businesses can work with us to deliver schemes that benefit people of all ages within the community.
