Canterbury Christmas ice rink plan delayed

By KentOnline reporter

The launch of Canterbury's first ever ice rink has been put back by almost a week.

It was hoped the festive attraction would open on Saturday in the city's Dane John Gardens, but "last-minute delays" have forced a change of plan.

Workers only arrived on site today and started building the covered rink, which will remain open until New Year's Day when finally launched.

It will be operated by local firm Noah & the Shed in partnership with Canterbury City Council.

Council spokesman Leo Whitlock said: "There have been some last-minute delays with the arrival of some of the equipment which has pushed the launch date back.

"We are keeping a close eye on its progress and the operator is planning to be open by Friday, December 8, at the latest."

People hoping to use the rink are invited to book using a website that has yet to be launched.
