We were very lucky to be able to purchase the OLD Huddersfield bouldering wall when the Sports Centre closed down last year.

We are now at a stage where we would like to share this magnificent featured wall with the local community of Holmfirth, the Holme Valley and nearby areas. However, we need a space to rent (only between 50-150 sqm) and we need some funding to enable us to do this. For people who donate to this great venture there will be free access on a pro-rata basis to your donation. After it has been set up, we would then run this as a non-profit making community venture; only charging a minimum to cover expenses such as rent, rates, utilities, insurance etc.

We have all the wonderful featured panels from the old bouldering area, the matting, climbing holds and fixings. So the fund is for the first year's rent, insurance, the structure to hold the wall in place and new covers for the foam matting.

If you feel you would like to be part of this new venture please donate or get in touch with Ruth and Carl using my e-mail address: ruthdawson@live.co.uk
