Changes in January
Wednesday Extended Opening Hours
The Climbing Works will open earlier at 10am on Wednesdays only (so 10am to 10pm).
The Mini Climbing Works will open later until 9pm on Wednesdays only (so 10am to 9pm).
This should hopefully provide a few more options for people who struggle to fit in their sessions mid week!
While it would obviously be helpful to some customers if we opened earlier every day and later at the Mini Works this isn't feasible for us as we need to fit in stripping and setting of boulder problems, daily centre cleaning & we have regular kids sessions at the Mini Works on the other evenings which would be disrupted if we encouraged too many other customers to head over there at the same time.
This is a trial!
We are interested to see whether is will have a positive impact on the busyness of the centre at peak times; if it does we are more likely to continue it long term, so use it or lose it ;)
External group changes
From January the entry prices for external groups are increasing to £6pp peak & £5pp off peak as these didn't increase along with the last couple of entry prices increases over the past 5 years. We have introduced a peak and off peak rate for groups as it is far less disruptive to our other centre users if groups visit us off peak.
We are also introducing a £4.50 fee per session to cover our admin & facilities costs for external commercial coaching & instructing.
Full details of the new pricing can be found here.
