Christopher said: “We’re here to encourage people to get on the ice here at intu Braehead.
“You can come and learn to skate, speed skate, hockey skate, figure skate in fact, any kind of skate.

“Mums and dads will be really happy because they can come to and have a great time.”
Jayne added: “And skating will keep you fit.”

Jayne and Chris’s visit to intu Braehead was also special for the Arena’s operations manager, Lauren Little.

Lauren is an accomplished skater and competed in figure skating and ice dance competitions all over the country as a teenager.

Lauren revealed: “When I was skating as a youngster Torvill and Dean were always the people that inspired me and it was great to meet up with them.

“I’ve loved skating since I started as a seven year old and I always take the opportunity to go through some of my old routines on the ice when I get the chance.”

Marketing manager for intu Braehead, Christine Macdonald said: ‘We’re part of a UK-wide company, intu, that owns and manages the most popular destinations and we’re aiming to create compelling experiences for our customers.
