Ice-skat­ing op­por­tu­nity

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

A slice of Stawell’s Main Street will be trans­formed into a win­ter won­der­land dur­ing the school hol­i­days.

North­ern Grampians Shire Mayor Tony Driscoll said a full-scale ice-skat­ing rink set up on va­cant land next to Stawell Town Hall would be a per­fect cure for hol­i­day bore­dom.

The coun­cil and Stawell Re­gional Health are be­hind the pro­ject.

Cr Driscoll said the ice-skat­ing rink would pro­vide a wel­come boost for Main Street busi­ness own­ers.

“This is ex­pected to pro­vide an in­flux of not only Stawell res­i­dents vis­it­ing the CBD, but should also at­tract a num­ber of out out-of-town vis­i­tors to Stawell, not only to use the skat­ing rink, but also to ex­plore all that’s on of­fer in Stawell,” he said.

“This event lines up well with the huge range of events on of­fer in Stawell across the Easter pe­riod, and adds an­other di­men­sion to what’s on of­fer in North­ern Grampians Shire dur­ing that time.”

The ice-skat­ing rink will be open to peo­ple of all ages.

Ses­sions will op­er­ate on the hour from 10am to 4pm, and the rink will be open be­tween 7am and 8pm on Thurs­day, Friday and Satur­day nights.

Peo­ple can visit the rink 15 min­utes ahead of time, call 0421 788 605 or email man­ager@win­ter­magi­ci­ceskat­ to make a book­ing.
