New Ice Rink in Sunderland!

We the undersigned, are petitioning for a new ice rink for use by proffessionals and members of the general public, to be built in or near the city centre. Since the summer of 2000 when the ice rink at Crowtree Leisure centre was closed, many people, those who were able at least, managed to continue their skating carreer by relocating to Whitley Bay. However many youngsters were not able to travel that far, and so they had to simply give up their hobby. After talking to members of the public it has been decided action should be taken to make our voice heard. Signatures will be sent to all local councillors and MP'S.


We are skaters from in and around Sunderland, who would like to see ice skating brought back to the city!

    2 years ago Comments: I simply cant believe how long this is taking i want to be able to teach my kids how to skate but sunderland to whitley or billingham is just too far, lets hope those who ripped our beloved rink from us see the right way and atleast look at it again but as part of a larger complex also a new designed building would make sunderland much more appealing might even bring in some buisness instead of new office buildings feeding fat cats an ice rink helps local buisness much much more, and suggestion of where to put a rink sunnyside - flatten the decaying husks of old buildings or SoLs very large random patch of grass
