Make Free New Year’s Eve Swim and Skate Part of Your Holiday Plans

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and Tim Hortons have been busy organizing some active fun on New Year's Eve with the annual free family swim and skate at the CVRD's sports centre from 5 to 8 p.m. on December 31, 2015.

“Having Tim Hortons’ continued support of this event allows our residents to ring in the new year with friends and family in a healthy, active way,” said the CVRD's marketing specialist Robyn Butler.

“We always look forward to giving back to our community,” added Lynda Brocklehurst, owner of the Comox Valley Tim Hortons. “We hope members of our community will fit this into their new year’s plans to kick off a very festive evening.”

As in previous years, attendees can enjoy complimentary Timbits, hot chocolate and coffee, plus a number of fabulous door prizes. There will be limited skate rentals available so it’s recommended to arrive early. Also, donations to the Comox Valley Food Bank will be gratefully accepted.

Come prepared to snap a photo at the “selfie station” on the ice and hashtag it #CVswimandskate for your opportunity to win additional prizes. For more information, visit  or follow comoxvalleyrd on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates.

The Comox Valley Regional District is a federation of three electoral areas and three municipalities providing sustainable services for residents and visitors to the area.
