BRISTOL – Following a streak of vandalism at the Norway Bay public rink, which included a broken door (photo), graffiti, and a broken light, among others, a special meeting was held, January 28, to discuss the future of the facility.
Eleven members of the Bristol Community Association attended the meeting and decided on a course of action in light of the situation. The cabin will remain closed, although the lights will be on a timer, but the rink will remain available to the public. Groups or families wishing to use the cabin, with heat, can do so upon request, but they must be responsible for supervision. The cabin will display a sign saying “Closed for repairs.”
The interior of the cabin will be re-painted to cover the vulgar language in time for the Winter Carnival. In addition, a survey will be prepared and mailed to Bristol residents to identify the rink’s users and to help recruit supervisors for the facility.
