Current Norfolk County Ice Situation
Submitted By Martin Jefferson on Monday, July 6, 2020
Over the past few months we have been examining the impact of the closure of the Rec Centre Arena. The inescapable conclusion is that the closure of this arena - as directed by Norfolk County's 2020 budget - will result in significant ice availability shortages, force reductions in Minor Hockey's programming, and render the County incapable of meeting the needs of the citizens of Norfolk. 

We need your help! A copy of the cover letter and accompanying discussion paper can be found here.

Cover Letter and Discussion Paper

In order to reverse the motion to close the Rec Centre we need Council’s support. You can reach out to them with your views via the email address below.
