“We would like to thank Cher Przelomski and Kathryn Massa of the Planning Factory for all of their hard work putting this together, as well as Erica Smith, Raymond Lambert and the exceptional team at Bermuda Economic Development Corporation for the support,” he said.

“We would especially like to thank the Mayor and Corporation of St. George for sharing the vision necessary to make an event like this happen.

“I’d like to encourage residents of Bermuda to take full advantage of this opportunity brought to you by RUBiS and Bermuda Gas, and come on down to the East End and get your skates on!”

    Not just for St Georges. It’s not exactly a 2-day overnighter from Somerset, is it?

    Well done – whoever would have thought an ice rink in Bermuda. Great to see some fresh, fun ideas happening – look forward to trying it although I think there may be more laughing (great sound) then skating.

    • Lois Frederick says:

      It’s not ice. It’s some kind of plastic surface. Amazing as it looks like they are skating on ice.

    This is such a nice recreational activity for the Bermudians. I love ice skating, a beautiful sport, but just remember if and when you fall get up and keep trying. Bumps and bruises come with the sport.⛸⛸⛸
