News - November 2009


We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you, our wonderful customers, for your continued patience and support over what have been an exceptionally difficult time.


From September 2nd we have revised COVID restrictions. 


Face Coverings:

We encourage and support customers to wear masks around the centre but it is not compulsory anymore to wear them.

The reception team will not obliged to wear a mask anymore but the screen will still be in place around the reception area.

Coaches will still have to wear masks on coached sessions as well as groups with participants aged 9 and above


Centre capacities:

With the removal of the very specific capacities from government guidance we will be cautiously increasing our centre capacities by 10%

The Climbing Works – 105 to 116 (sign out still required)

The Mini Works – 45 to 50 (slot bookings)

Unit E – 45 to 50


Social distancing:

The government guidance from 19th July means that there are no legal limits on indoor group size, but we still strongly encourage you to socially distance (2m where possible!) from people you don’t have frequent contact with anyway.

It is important that you continue to respect the space of anyone you have not mutually agreed that you are happy to be closer to or do not know.



We will continue to manage these risks and monitor them closely. In the event of significant new evidence and government announcements we will revise these new policies and not hesitate to put restrictions back in place.

9 Nov 2009 Works Winter Bouldering League Results R1

Round 1 of our Winter Bouldering League went amazingly well with over 100 people taking part in the nights competition. 25 problems graded from Font 4 to 7c meant a wide range of abilities tackling Sam & Percy's creations. 

The cash prize problems both got sent with the Men's getting 10 tops (a bit of lateral thinking by Dave Mason meant missing the crux out and led to many tops after him) while the Women had 3 ascents. The Men each got £12.50 while the ladies went home with £41 each. Not a bad nights work for Leah, Katy and Naomi.

The full scores are now available to view and can be downloaded here >>


You can read a quick overview of the nights action on our blog. The next round will take place on Friday 4th December with another £250 up for grabs. The Men's problem will be a little harder next time....

N.B. As the night was so popular and by 10pm, people were still trying to tick problems, we are going to extend the hours of the comp. R2 will now start at 6pm and end at 10pm.
