Climbing The Walls Ltd: Directors Statement

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have taken the decision to close Climbing The Walls until Easter 2021.

The closure will take effect from 10pm on Thursday 15th October 2020.

As you can imagine, this is not a decision we have taken lightly but as a financially secure local company who physically interacts with the local community, we feel this decision is the perfect balance between being financially responsible for the future of the business and also the best ethical solution we could make given recent infection growth and the approaching Winter Wave!

Our sincerest and heartfelt thanks to our loyal staff and customers during these testing times.

We will be refunding all current bookings and pausing or refunding all membership dues. We thank you in advance for your patience, understanding and support during this time and we will use our best endeavours to refund all booking revenues by the end of the month.

This inbox will continue to be monitored on an intermittent basis.

This strategic decision will create time for some new world thinking in regard to the management/ownership/operation of the Climbing Centre and for us to consider and explore in detail, a wide variety of operating and tenancy options moving forward post pandemic to ensure the success of the centre when it re-opens.

If any individual, organisation or climbing community groups are interested in taking this vibrant, successful Climbing Centre forward post-pandemic please contact our Director Kevin Murphy via email: FAO Kevin Murphy

Many Thanks

The Board of Directors of Climbing The Walls Limited
