SPORT NOT LEISURE: WORKING TO KEEP RINKS OPEN

Representatives across ice hockey in the UK have been in more meetings with DCMS, in which the importance of keeping ice rinks open in tier three across England has been highlighted.

In total, 54% of all rinks in England will have to close within the restrictions. This would have a significant impact on our sport and officials are doing everything they can to change the government’s approach.

Officials are working tirelessly to represent rinks and skaters and discussions are still ongoing. Any new information will be provided as soon as it is available.

Please keep contacting your local MPs. The letters, and messages you send them could be vital in our attempts to keep rinks open.
