Petition to Save IOW Ice Rink

The ice rink in Ryde is due to close on March 25th unless new management can be found after Planet Ice announced its withdrawal.

Planet Ice has lost money on the rink for the last seven years and feels it is no longer financially viable. Users are hoping for another operator to come in with the funds and means to manage the rink.

The Ryde Ice Rink and Arena provides several jobs as well as playing host to ice hockey players, figure skating coaches and social users. It is an integral feature of the beachfront scene in Ryde and will be a sad loss to the town and to the Island.

Campaigners have set up a Facebook group called Save Our Isle of Wight Ice Rink and a petition has been launched at which all readers are invited to sign.

Please take a moment to register your support for the campaign.
