Our latest Covid19 update posted 6th June 2020:
AVW update Thursday 2nd July
We are currently waiting for the Scottish government to give us a date that we can work towards for re opening the centre.
Whilst we guess this will be either the latter half of July or beginning of August it is only a guess and we will let everyone know as soon as we have a date, hopefully that news should be forthcoming soon.
When we have a date we will publish any of the protocols / restrictions that may apply on opening to reduce the risks to all.
We hope to see you soon.
We have started a page on the website (along with posts on social media too), of stories both related to AVW, climbing and the local area. With the intension to inspire, enthuse and create a few smiles, we hope you enjoy.
1st up is a series of photos taken from Broughty Ferry beach, just 4 miles from AVW, and one of many spectacular places around Dundee.
AVERTICAL WORLD TEMPORARY CLOSURE
It is with great sadness that we will be closing AVW from today (Tue 17th March)
This is due to the recent rapid developments in the COVID-19 crisis.
This is the consensus with-in the industry regarding the right thing to do, as a step in the prevention of the rapid spread of COVID-19 and reducing pressures on the NHS.
We realise how this will effect our community and the importance AVW holds in your lives both climbing and socially. We wish to keep AVW alive through this crisis so that we can reopen the centre and preserve jobs for our valued employees.
If you have a Monthly / 6 month / Annual membership your pass will be frozen.
We do not have a system to do this immediately so we would ask for your patience, they will re-activate automatically when we reopen.
We will contact current bookings directly to hopefully plan a delay to the planned date.
SUPPORTING AVERTICAL WORLD
Please stay a member – We are asking all current pass holders not to cancel their memberships but to stick with the freeze. This will be of considerable help towards AVW’s survival.
We are supporting our staff on this and you will realise that as this has happened so quickly there may be staff who are not up to speed with regards to the current situation, please be patient.
If you leave a message we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.
PLEASE LOOKOUT FOR EACH OTHER
We are all together in this extraordinary event and supporting each other will play a big role in the weeks ahead.
