An ice rink - what a splendid idea. My husband and I thought that that would have been far more beneficial than the Everyman cinema. If not an ice rink, then a bowling alley. Something active for all ages; families, teenagers and even older people!
Harrogate moans about youngsters hanging around drinking etc but doesn’t provide any facilities. It took years and years to get the skate park. My children grew up and left while they were still talking about it, but look how popular that is now. Instead of moaning about the young let’s show them they are a valuable part of the town and provide for them.
