We are changing the way in which we admit novices for climbing.....
Currently, the form is ‘attached’ to the supervisor’s record and the novices are not a customer in their own right on our entry system. We wish to change this and ensure each novice that climbs here has their own record.

It seems ages since we did any major development to the centre. I mean it’s been a whopping 8 months since we opened Wells 1 and 2 and oooh, all of 3 months since we improved the men’s changing rooms, added a new floor of lockers and installed a bike park out the front.
And so, since the dust has finally settled on the last improvements (as it always does in this place..) we thought we’d start again! This time centred on Reception.
