A few weeks ago it was announced that Bristol Ice Rink will close its doors and be redeveloped into student accommodation and that it still unsure whether a replacement rink will go ahead. There has been started an online petition to Bristol Council and to the central government to show that there is support for a rink.
Bristol is an important rink for ice hockey in the UK houses a successful English National League South side as well development teams of all ages. If this rink was to close it be a round trip of 160 miles in order for the youngsters in those teams to play the sport.
