Work complete on £239,000 refurbishment of Telford Ice Rink
A £239,000 refurbishment of Telford Ice Rink is now complete.
Building work began in March, helping to maintain one of the biggest leisure attractions in Telford, which generates an annual income of over £800,000.
The improvements, which were funded by Telford & Wrekin Council, involved modifications to the main reception area, allowing Telford Ice Rink to improve the flow of customers into the building during peak periods.
Improvements have been made to Café Go, including brand new seats, and reconfiguration of the toilets following feedback from customers.
One of the biggest improvements started in April, by replacing all existing spectator seating with new seats and flooring to reveal a fresh balcony space ready for the new ice hockey season.
Recent funding has also been secured to update and install new light and sound systems throughout the ice pad.
Councillor Rae Evans, cabinet member for customer services, partnerships, culture and leisure said: “This investment has been key in maintaining Telford’s very own ice rink.
"The team are really proud of these improvements and hope it contributes towards the overall customer experience at Telford Ice Rink.
“As the weather turns, customers can expect a warmer queuing area indoors and improved seating for those all-important ice hockey matches.”
