Is Crawley getting an Ice Rink for Christmas this year?



We are only weeks away from the reopening of the highly controversial Queens Square transformation but already there is talk of exciting prospects ahead this winter.

Plans have been submitted to the council for an ice rink to be erected in the square, something which would be very new to the town.

The idea is to continue to provide something new and exciting for shoppers that also encourages footfall for the local businesses.
Councillor Peter Lamb, Leader of the Council, said:

“For several years, residents have told us they want to see an ice rink in the town centre so we are working with an experienced operator to bring an ice rink to Queens Square, subject to planning permission, as part of our Christmas events programme.

“The ice rink is expected to attract significant footfall at a crucial time of year for our town centre businesses and will provide an opportunity for visitors to take part in a healthy physical activity.”

So if planning approval is granted get ready to grab your skates and take to the ice…just be careful not to damage the paving, it cost a fortune!
