ANDOVER’S Big Weekend, which begins today, will be topped off by the arrival of a spectacular new addition to the town centre – an outdoor ice rink.

Young and old will be able to free their inner Torvill and Dean at the rink, which will be in the High Street from Monday until 29th November and at the Andover Leisure Centre from 1st December through to mid-February.

“The ice rink will be an exciting new addition to the town creating a wonderful Christmas atmosphere,” said Linda Arnold, from Andover Leisure Centre.
