URGENT: Support the proposal for a new twin-ice facility at Lee Valley

In order to preserve ice hockey at Lee Valley it’s essential that everyone tells Waltham Forest Council that they support the proposed twin-ice facility as soon as possible.  If the proposal isn’t passed then it is likely the existing rink won’t be sustained for much longer and hockey/skating at Lee Valley will be lost forever.  Please tell the council what a new rink will mean to you by sending an email to dmconsultations@walthamforest.gov.uk, quoting Application ID 194162.  Here’s a template you can use:

If Lee Valley Ice Centre could not be replaced and had to close it would [insert a few lines what the impact of losing the venue would be on you].

Best wishes

Footage from Radegast Trophy from 1988

Dundee Stars have uploaded to YouTube footage from a match they played against the Lions back on 5 February 1988.  It was played in honour of Jaroslav Lycka, a Czech defenceman who was with the Stars before joining us to play alongside other fan favourites, such as Doug McEwen and Tari Suwari.
