Thanks to every one for making the Skating week in the Park such a success.

The weather was kind to us, and even the one wet morning didn’t dampen the spirits.

The Park was buzzing all week with happy families. A huge thank-you must go out to all of you who helped: the volunteers who helped with the organisation and in the cafe, and to the (almost) 2000 of you who came to see whether you could be the next Torvill or Dean.

To help us gauge the success of the event and with future planning, please could you fill in the short online survey at:, it shouldn’t take you more than a couple of minutes and it really will help.
