The ice skating rink at Somers Gardens in St George’s — is holding their Grand Opening today, with a special guest performance by American Olympic ice skaters Tiffany Scott and Philip Dulebohn.
The guest performance was free for the public, thanks to sponsorship from Butterfield Bank, and the skate rink itself is now opening for the whole community to enjoy on scheduled dates until January 2nd.
Graham Redford, Managing Director of RUBiS said they were proud to be lead sponsors of the event and “extremely happy” to see this innovative event come to life.
“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!”
The cost for up to one hour of skating will be $20 per person including skates and transition time on and off the ice. For more information on St George’s Skates, please visit their website.
