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:
