British Airways staff got their skates on to start Christmas in style in Reigate.

For they headed down to Priory Park to celebrate British Airways’ sponsorship of ‘Skating in the Park’ organised by Surrey Entertainments.

The outdoor ice rink is open from now right through to Sunday January 6.

Actor Shane Ritchie from Eastenders and TV chef Tony Tobin joined British Airways ambassadors Vicci Boyce and Anthony Meakin to officially open the ice rink earlier this month.

Silla Maizey, British Airways managing director, Gatwick, said: “British Airways does fly to some fantastic winter destinations from Gatwick, but for those who want to stay closer to home this year the Priory Park ice rink is a fantastic way to enjoy some traditional winter sport on their doorstep.”

Shane Ritchie said: “Surrey Entertainments are very excited to be working alongside British Airways on and hoping everyone who comes along has a wonderful Christmas time.”
