From the 1950s through to the 1970s QUEENS produced its fair share of top skaters, many of whom went on to become British, European, World and Olympic champions. The roll of honour includes such names as:
Courtney Jones, June Markham, Doreen Denny, John Curry, Robin Cousins, John & Jennifer Nicks, Sally Stapleford, Diane Towler & Bernard Ford - the list goes on.
While pursuing different disciplines the common link they all shared was that they were coached at some stage in their careers by the late Gladys Hogg MBE, who began coaching at Queens from the day it opened in 1930 until her retirement in 1984.
QUEENS Ice Dance Club has been championed by Dickie Arbiter for the past 15 years.
