It’s time to lace ‘em up, step on out and glide effortlessly across the ice with all the grace and beauty of a bird of paradise. Ok, some may be more graceful than others…
In fact 99% of us hitting the ice rinks this Christmas are more likely to be found gingery shuffling along the outer perimeters holding on to the hand rail for dear life than dancing the Bolero. But it’s the taking part that counts right?
Even if you’re less Torvill and Dean and more Chas and Dave out there on the ice, it’s all good fun and this Christmas is seeing more pop up ice rinks than ever before! So round up your nearest and dearest, and take your bruises together. That’s the Christmas way!
