    This is my dream ice rink for the city of Durham England. We had one from the 40s up to about 15 years ago. Sadly it was demolished a few weeks ago. Its left a hole in the city no one can fill. I constantly urge the city planners to build another but it falls on deaf ears. I have letters from the young people not to give up my fight as there is nothing for them. It is a beautiful city and in my heart I would love this dream to happen. Good luck and I hope it benefits your city over and over again. xx
