Six-year plan for Portsmouth seasonal rink
The News reports on a plan to bring a seasonal ice rink to Portsmouth’s Guildhall Square every winter until January 2024.
Construction of the rink and winter wonderland this year is expected to start in early November. The rink should open on 18 November 2017 and will run until 2 January 2018.
Portsmouth has had a chequered history of seasonal ice rinks, with a plastic rink at Gunwharf Quays running irregularly for a number of years.
