Ground-breaking news!

Thursday, 30th March 2006

Work on the new Altrincham Ice Dome is finally underway!  Yesterday afternoon a beaming Neil Morris and Mike Petrouis of nIce Leisure took part in a ceremonial ground-breaking at the rink's Oldfield Road site, cheered on by around forty of the Phoenix faithful who came along to see the event, along with members of the press.

"It's been a long hard slog, but we finally made it!" said Neil Morris. "Manchester is about to get its own ice rink, and the Phoenix are coming back - I couldn't be happier!"

Now the building work starts in earnest, with the construction crews moving in to erect the ice rink with an expected completion date sometime in latJuly.
