Following on from earlier posts regarding the climbing wall at the community campus, Gavin Baxter has sent us further information as noted below:
I’ve had a very good meeting with Gillian Wood and Donald Fraser (Community Leisure Officers) at the Campus, and shared with them the results of the online poll, which had generated an amazing 740 votes for the wall to be opened to the public, and of those, 712 had also asked that a club be set up.
On the first issue, that of public access, they are creating a new job role to act as a climbing supervisor/instructor, however that may take at least a few months before someone is in post.
I am therefore looking to gather interest from anyone in the area keen to help create a climbing club, as this would allow people to start climbing at club sessions, under the control of appropriately qualified volunteers.
A ‘kick off’ meeting is provisionally scheduled for Mon 12th Sept, at 19:00 in the Community Campus. A Facebook group has also been created to help gather interested individuals, and allow ideas to be discussed. Please request access at https://www.facebook.com/
