Family Skating Party is today
At the rink on the green from 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Good morning Norwich, today is the day of the annual family skating party to be held at the green and yes the rink is ready. I hope you will be,and please bring a helmet for this event to ensure safety. I have included a safety piece from google regarding helmets for skating.
Parents are often concerned about children learning ice skating with no head protection. This study in the journal Pediatrics indicates that the concern is well-placed, and recommends helmets for ice skating. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends that ice skaters use bicycle, ski or skateboard helmets.
