After ten years of the Council and supermarket giant Tesco bumping heads, and to our severe disappointment, the decision has been made; Streatham Ice Rink is set to be shut down and on Sunday 18 December (4-8pm), the rink will be holding its last skate. Sob. Despite some bad press, the ice arena – which celebrated its 80 anniversary this year – has been an institution for local ice hockey teams, ice dancers and children, and locals are worried Streatham will ‘be dead’ once it’s gone. It is set to be replaced by the Streatham Hub, which will house a Tesco superstore, a new state of the art ice rink and a 25 lane swimming pool.
