ABERDEEN’S only ice rink has opened its doors to the public for the first time in over a year, as part of a series of free taster sessions.

The Linx Ice Arena closed in March last year as part of Aberdeen City Council’s £27million budget cuts – forcing skaters to travel to Elgin and Dundee.

During the 18-month closure the rink underwent a £1.45million refurbishment, which members of the public and skating groups are now being asked to test ahead of next month’s European Curling Championships.
