Future of Ice Rink

Hi everyone

The LVRPA are asking our opinion on their plans for the ice rink. It’s very short notice, but hopefully you’ll be able to attend one of the drop-in sessions outlined below.

There isn’t enough time for us to meet before the drop-in sessions, but it would be great to see as many people as possible at the Save Lea Marshes meeting on Monday 14 December to discuss the feedback from the sessions and think about our collective response. It’s at 7.30 at the Princess of Wales pub.

Please share far and wide!

Subject: The Future of Ice Skating in the Lee Valley - Feasibility Study Information Session
Date: 3 December 2015 13:17:11 GMT

Lee Valley Regional Park Authority – the body which owns Lee Valley Ice Centre – is carrying out a feasibility study on the provision of ice activities in the Lee Valley.

The hugely popular Lee Valley Ice Centre on Lea Bridge Road is more than 30 years old and we need to look at the future.

The centre is open up to 19 hours a day, seven days a week and is a well-established and well-used community asset that draws around 370,000 visits from the local community, across London and further afield.

The study is looking at three main options:
1. Refurbish the current venue
2. Build a new venue at the current site on Lea Bridge Road
3. Build a new centre elsewhere in Lee Valley Regional Park

We’re looking at these options so that we can meet the growing demand for public skating, community and national programmes and have greater flexibility to host major events, including internationals. One possibility is
a venue with two ice rinks which would allow public skating sessions and events to take place simultaneously.

We’re holding two drop-in sessions to bring you up to speed and answer any questions you have.

Wednesday 9 December, 17:00 - 18:00 at Lee Valley Ice Centre

Saturday 12 December, 10:30 - 11:30 at WaterWorks Centre (across the road from  Lee Valley Ice Centre)

Please let us know if you’ll be attending by emailing
