Cool fun on Redcar High Street for half term

Cool fun will arrive at Redcar High Street this half term with Borough’s first ice rink thanks to Redcar and Cleveland Council.

Opening tomorrow, (Wednesday, October 25) the all-weather synthetic polished surface will be open to skaters 10am-9pm daily until Sunday, 29 October with a £3.50 fee per session.

The Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Tourism, Councillor Dave Fitzpatrick, said: “The whole town is really excited about the arrival of this ice rink.

“I’m not a very good skater but I will definitely have a go, it’s a fun way to keep fit and spend time with the family”

The rink will hold up to 90 skaters at a time and organisers have a store of 144 pairs of boots with sizes ranging from suitable for those aged three year olds, up to adult size 13.

Construction of the 12 metres by 18 metres rink started on Monday, October 23.

Leaflets with 50p off coupons have distributed across the borough, each coupon is valid for up to four people.
