An ice rink will help launch the festive season in Staveley as the town hosts its Christmas market and lights switch-on.

The 13m x 13m mobile ice rink will be on offer in the Market Square between 4pm and 8pm next Wednesday.

The attraction has been made possible thanks to Staveley Town Council, Derbyshire County Council, Community Growth CIC, businesses and residents.

The Christmas market will include food, craft stalls and children’s rides.

The lights switch-on will take place at 6.30pm.
