BOOKINGS for this year’s Steyne Gardens ice rink are already proving popular.
Worthing Town Centre Initiative said online bookings for Christmas Eve skating sessions are getting filled up quickly.
Sharon Clarke, town centre manager, said: “This year, the ice rink is in town over Christmas, so we expect it to be very popular.
“It’s a great time of year to have the rink – because it means people can combine some skating and do some of their Christmas shopping – so it’s great for Worthing.”
After last year’s ice rink, which was in Steyne Gardens in February, made a £50,000 loss, the Town Centre Initiative decided to forget the rink this year.
Sharon added: “The operator really wanted Worthing to have the ice rink again, so they dropped the 25 per cent Christmas premium which meant it was feasible for us to have it back again this year, and at the most desirable time of year.”
Worthing’s ice rink will be open daily from December 10 to January 8.
