Jersey will have an ice rink this Christmas.

The news comes after the previous operator of the popular festive attraction announced they could not run it this year.

Operated by a UK firm, the rink will be open from 6 December 2019 to 5 January 2020 at Fort Regent.

Following the news that the previous ice rink operator could not commit this year, we were concerned we wouldn’t be able to offer this popular festive activity.

We are so pleased to now welcome the Very Nice Ice rink to our calendar of events to see us celebrate the festive season.

I would like to thank our tenants and regular users for working with us to accommodate the event, at such short notice, as we have tried to minimise disruption.

– Fort Regent Centre Manager, Jo Mousdale

This is a positive outcome for the community and I would like to thank the management and all staff at the Fort for going the extra mile to make this happen.

– Senator Steve Pallett, Assistant Minister, with responsibly for Spor
