Outdoor boulder field: Crispin Waddy (Living Stone Climbing Walls) is expecting to finish the outdoor boulders today. Next steps are to put in the rubber chipping which will form the landing surface and to finish the decking and landscaping around the boulders. We're on schedule to open them at The Garden Party on Sunday the 21st of July.
The Loft: The boulder walls and mats are ready to go, but we're still working on the stairwell. All 99 steps from the bottom of the Wells to the Loft are now in place, but there's still a lot to to do before it's a fully functional fire escape. We're also going to have to replace the railings that were put up. We're getting on with this work as fast as we can... we want to climb up there as much as you do!
Thames Water, our landlords, have decided after over five years of delay to investigate a leak in our front garden. This is causing some disruption to our site, and, unfortunately, as we don't know the size and location of the leak we can't predict how long it will take to sort it out.
Hooray for us!
