Durham ice rink demolition continues

DEMOLITION of a much-loved former ice rink is continuing in a city centre.

Workers moved in to start dismantling Durham Wasps’ old rink, off Freeman’s Place, earlier this month.

Much of the building has now been knocked down.

The rink, which has stood idle since it was last used as a bowling alley in 2009, is to make way for the £27m Durham Riverside Renewal Project, which includes offices, a visitor centre and a cafe.

The site’s redevelopment will create or protect up to 800 jobs.

The project will create no jobs. 400 staff from Millburngate house will move across to the new building. The other 800 staff will move out of Durham City less people in Durham more crap shops.
