Rachael Hodge (11), from Denny, is a member of Stirling New Figure Skating Club and has been unable to hit the ice at The Peak – where they usually train – due to current COVID-19 restrictions.

However, the cold snap at the start of the year created an temporary “ice rink” in a field near Denny High School, allowing Rachael to go through her paces in an outdoor setting.
