After the best part of 40 years, Lee Valley Ice Centre closes its doors for the final time this weekend. The rink will be demolished and rebuilt into a much larger venue, featuring two ice pads, cafe, gym, exercise studios and community spaces. It is anticipated that the new centre will be completed by October 2022. You can find out more about the plans here and you can keep updated with news on their Twitter page.
The Lions are currently looking at options for continuing with a team while that happens and any updates on this will be posted here.
In the meantime, we say a very fond farewell to the Den and the countless amazing memories it has created for so many people.
