This is the home page of the Streatham Ice Skating Action Group (SISAG). There has been an ice rink in Streatham (South London, UK) since 1931. In the light of the planning application by Tescos to re-develop the site, and Lambeth Council's consultation on the surrounding area, many people were concerned about possibly losing the ice rink, but were not in contact with each other. SISAG was set up to share information and co-ordinate a campaign to preserve ice skating in Streatham.
The aims of SISAG are in Aims and Objectives. Information about the campaign is posted on Campaign News. Information about SISAG email updates, and project updates from Lambeth is available at Project Updates. The original Streatham rink was the second oldest in the country. For some historical information see Rink History. The new Streatham rink is now open and events are happening there - see Rink Events. For links to other relevant sites see Links. For details of how to contact the group see Contact SISAG.
SISAG is also part of the Stakeholders Group that Lambeth set up to be consulted about the leisure development.

Dismantling of Brixton Rink Complete
The dismantling of the Brixton Rink in Pope's Road is complete (see link to pictures below). Lambeth Council is to invite bidders to enter a public competition to run the space left by removing the building. There is an article about it in the Brixton Blog here.
Scrollable Panorama of Leisure Centre and Rink
The Streatham Ice and Leisure Centre website here now has 360 degree scrollable photographs of the different levels inside the Centre. It defaults to the ice rink level (1) but you can switch to the lower levels using the bar on the left.
