SOLIHULL’S ice rink, which closed for six months for a major refurbishment, will reopen this evening.
The Blue Ice Plaza Complex, in Hobs Moat Road, closed its doors in April and since then work has been carried out to improve facilities.
New eco-friendly pipes were fitted beneath the facility, which is jointly owned by Solihull Council and Leisure Living Ltd, in order to create a higher-quality icy surface.
While skaters had to find an alternative venue during the summer months, the ice rink has reopened on schedule and is holding several events to celebrate.
Manager Stuart Cummings said: “The ice rink is one of Solihull’s most popular leisure destinations and a huge asset to the borough.
“Having been closed over the summer for essential works, we are delighted to have the rink back open for the October half-term and hope both new and familiar faces will come down and join us this weekend as we celebrate our reopening.”
A family fun day will be held tomorrow. To find out more about the venue go to www.solihullicerink.co.uk or call 0121 742 5561.
