A PLANNED roller rink on Bognor Regis seafront this summer has been cancelled.
The attraction was intended to be one of the main features of this year’s Funshine Days being held by the town council. But the council’s civic and office manager, Jo Davis, said on Tuesday the cancellation was because of circumstances beyond its control.
“We have been working very hard to avoid this outcome but, despite our best efforts, the company with whom we had made the arrangements is no longer in a position to provide what we had planned,” she said.
“Becoming aware of this at such a late stage has meant that we’ve been unable to source a mobile roller rink from an alternative supplier.”
The giant outdoor roller rink was due to have been open all day next Thursday on the Place St Maur.
It promised skaters some classic 80s tracks for the perfect setting for some fluro legwarmers and deely boppers to recreate the fashion of the decade.
The additional free Funshine Days will be held next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the seafront bandstand.
The ever-popular donkey rides will be available from 11am-3pm on the first day. They will be followed by circus skills workshops between the same times on Wednesday and Thursday.
The Funshine Days will continue on August 7-9 and August 14-16.
