Families enjoyed the Christmas spirit when an ice skating rink came to Lowestoft town centre this weekend.

The synthetic rink, which is in the town this year for the first time, was opened by Lowestoft mayor Frank Mortimer on Saturday and was busy all weekend as people took a break from last-minute shopping.

Families enjoyed the Christmas spirit when an ice skating rink came to Lowestoft town centre this weekend.

The synthetic rink, which is in the town this year for the first time, was opened by Lowestoft mayor Frank Mortimer on Saturday and was busy all weekend as people took a break from last-minute shopping.

Emma Jones, town centre manager, said: “It has been great. We've had lots of lovely comments from people, a lot of them have said that it's about time something like this came to Lowestoft.

“My highlight has definitely been seeing so many people laughing, smiling and having fun.”

Christmas presents were also on sale at the festive continental market outside the Britten Centre, which came to town on Friday and will be open for business again on Monday.

The ice rink is open on Monday from 10am to 6pm. Tickets - which cost £4 for adults, £3 for children or £12 for a family of two adults and two children - will be on sale near the Teacup ride outside WHSmith in London Road North.
