Today (Monday 27th of September), Your Eastbourne BID announced that Lightning Fibre is the headline sponsor for Eastbourne’s ice rink, due to open on the 1st of December 2021 at Eastbourne’s Enterprise Shopping Centre.
CEO and Founder of Lightning Fibre, Ben Ferriman, commented“The announcement by Your Eastbourne BID that they were bringing an Ice Rink to Eastbourne this Christmas was amazing news. We immediately offered to headline sponsor this great event, which will bring a lot of enjoyment to families here and from out of town. As Eastbourne’s new, full fibre network operator it made a lot of sense for us to support this local initiative, both financially and by providing our full fibre broadband free of charge at the event for the public to use.
CEO of Your Eastbourne BID Stephen Holt added “Lightning Fibre are rolling out hyper fast broadband across the town, and I’m also delighted that our rink will also feature Full Fibre broadband. At the rink,users will be able to instantly upload their videos, photos and reviews of the experience and share them with friends and family thanks to Lightning Fibre’s high speed connectivity.”
“It’s such a great partnership - not only are Lightning Fibre showing their true commitment to our town, but I think the only thing faster than their internet connection might be the ice skaters?””
Stephen added “Tickets for the rink will be on sale online from Friday 8th October, as well as at the Bandstand, Welcome Building and the TIC in Seaford. So – grab your tickets early to avoid disappointment”
