Temporary Parking At Dumfries Ice Bowl
Dumfries and Galloway Council have asked us to make the following information known to supporters travelling to Sharks games this season.
Due to the location of the temporary swimming pool in the Ice Bowl's car park it has been necessary to restrict parking adjacent to the building. However, extra parking has kindly been made available to us in Queen of the South's car park.
The Solway Sharks appologise for any difficulties that this may cause but the matter is outwith our hands.
