General Ice Skating Chat / The Secret Life of Ice 7 pm BBC4 today
« Last Post by Carrie on Today at 03:39:12 PM »
English Style skating features in this programme.  The BBC came to Guildford to film a session back about eight or more years ago.  I canít remember how far into the programme we appear but itís all interesting anyway.  My few seconds of fame!!


Hope everyone is okay and it wonít be too long before we can skate again!

Romford closed down today as well.
By strange turn of events my daughter managed 6 hours in her new boots + blades.

Off ice (at home) stretching, spinning and jumping until rocks opens up

Had my last skate at Plymouth this morning.  They're melting and removing the pad tonight.  Really worried that it won't ever reopen, as the state of the place isn't good and they've literally been holding on for the promised new rink to be built.  That'll be put back now, and I believe the lease on the current building runs out this summer.  I'm not sure why I just bought new boots...

Well that's it then....

"All the UK's nightclubs, theatres, cinemas, gyms and leisure centres have also been asked to close "as soon as they reasonably can"."

ÖÖ. and it will be reviewed monthly.

I got an email from my local Planet Ice this morning. The contents surprised me as I was expecting the opposite of what they said.

"Planet Ice are currently operating as normal. We seek advice from government and local authorities, along with other experts, who can advise on the appropriate action to take at the right time.

Our next set of lessons for the Skate Excellence, Hockey Excellence, Ice Penguin & Small Group lessons start Saturday 28th March to Friday 15th May. The 3&5-day lessons are running over the Easter Holidays.
"

The email then goes on to detail the adjustments they're making and to remind customers not to come if they're unwell.

Part of me can't believe Planet Ice are still staying open. Part of me wants to go to my skate lessons as normal.  :-\

Edit: It's not just Planet Ice. I just checked Cambridge Ice Rink which is owned by Better and according to their website, they are planning to stay open also.
