Introducing Pat the Penguin


Meet Pat. Pat is a penguin. Pat the Penguin, if you will.

Pat’s new to the council, and as you can see, he’s been out and about getting to know the district.


He has a very specific job this winter – to help children enjoy our spectacular new Christmas ice rink in the Dane John.

Skate aids like Pat are available to hire, subject to availability, at all our Canterbury on Ice sessions this Christmas. Children must be aged 4 and over to skate.
