Debenham's new youth council has organised the weekend of ice skating
For one weekend only, visitors to Debenham can try their hand at ice skating - raising money for the local youth council at the same time.
The 12x8 metre temporary skating rink at Debenham High School is open on Friday, 28 January (4-10pm) and Saturday (11am-5pm), with a disco and separate time for parents and toddlers scheduled.
A 30 minute session on the ice costs £3 for children, £4 for adults and includes the hire of the skates.
"The Debenham Youth Council formed just before Christmas to give the young people a forum to tell the parish council and grownups what they want to do in Debenham," said Jane Baldwin, an adult helper for the youth council.
"Even though this event is for everyone, it was organised by the kids and money raised will be used by the council to put back into the community, whether it's for future events or equipment."
