Lockerbie Ice Rink is a Charity Trust run by a volunteer committee which has been running since 1967. It has curling and skating rink for the local community and local areas for people of all ages. The aim of the ice rink is to encourage public participation in sport by giving recreational areas.
The ice rink has many different clubs/groups some of which they run free of charge for local young people. These are weekly After School curling and a Mini Rockers for younger participants. The funds by Cunninghame Housing Association supports the new facility approved by the committee. It is offering free ice skating to young people below 6 years old over a period of 20 weeks.
We are delighted to be supporting Lockerbie Ice Rink and giving free ice skating for the youngsters. We know of the benefits that a great place has in the area.
