News - Tue 9th Mar 2010
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.
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
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
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.
The Climbing Works Team
Those of you involved in the international competition scene will be sad to hear that Giovanni Cantemessa, the Italian Team Manager and scourge of many a judge, has finally lost his last appeal. He had been in a coma following a car accident in 2008 and died last night.
Our condolensces to his family.
