Jardine urges Scottish Government to help save Murrayfield Ice Rink


Christine Jardine MP has called on the Scottish Government to help save Murrayfield Ice Rink closed due to the pandemic. 

 

Ms Jardine said: “The SNP government seems tone deaf to the calls from the skating community across Scotland to support this much-loved facility and just turned its back on their appeals.

“Why are they not prepared to offer the ice rink the same sort of support from the UK Government’s Recovery Fund as they offered the winter festival?

"As Edinburgh’s only permanent skating rink and nationally recognised facility, we should do everything we can to protect it. At a time when we are encouraging people to live healthier lives, it’s the sort of facility that should be getting support from both governments and the council to keep going.”
