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 temporary Brixton rink is 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 has set up to be consulted about the leisure development.
Preservation of Art Deco Panels
The art deco flower panels from below the windows of the old Streatham Ice Rink were preserved for inclusion in the new leisure centre. They will be mounted internally on the wall in the entrance lobby to the new ice rink. They will be renovated and repainted before installation. The proposed colour scheme (with the previous paintwork for comparison) is shown here.
Pictures of the Development
The Picture Gallery includes pictures of the development in progress. Here is a direct link to the Most Recent Pictures (19th April 2013) including new finishes to the rear and Natal Road side of the Leisure Centre.
