The Ice rink at Deeside leisure centre will be closed until at least Wednesday following a leak in one of the cooling systems.

The leak happened on Sunday, it meant ice was not able to retain its temperature and would start to melt leaving the rink unusable. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

We were told there were some initial concerns the ice would melt completely leading to a potentially ‘massive’ repair bill. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Mike Welch, Principal Leisure Services Officer said, ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Deeside Ice Rink was closed yesterday (Sunday 13 April) due to a leak in the secondary cooling system. The leak has been repaired and we are now waiting for a delivery to refill the cooling system. We hope to be in a position to re-open the ice rink on Wednesday.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
