Graeme Barney, director of 45joinery, also commented: “Having recently led a project to undertake a complete refurbishment of the team changing rooms at the Link Ice Arena, we saw first-hand the level of commitment and dedication given to the various ice sports, not only from the athletes but all the coaches and those maintaining the facilities. "Access to the best possible facilities is crucial in providing opportunities for these people to explore their sporting talents and have provided a platform for some incredibly talented sportspersons who deserve the support and recognition of the local community.
