Police and Army Cadets climb our mobile wall in Kirkby town centre

 

From 2011-2018 we used our mobile bouldering wall to engage with community groups. We NO LONGER HIRE the wall out. Thanks to Stepclever, who helped fund the wall’s build, we have been able to do the following:

Community Events

Working with Linx4Life, The Netherley Show, The Walton Festival and the Flower Festival to name just a few. The wall give us the opportunity to meet with the community and encourage people to try something new. Our youngest user was about 2 years old and climbed with parents help. The oldest was in her mid 80’s and both loved the experience.

Schools Work

We took the wall into over 100 of schools in Liverpool and the North West. Running health days, PE lessons and supporting school fairs and fundraising.

Police Work

Our wall was first used to help Merseyside Police with diversionary work. We took the wall, with police support, to various trouble spots around the city for events such as Mischief Night. Some of the work done with our wall in Knowsley helped to reduce youth crime and won us the MPA Community Safety Award in 2012.

Youth Work

Over the last 7 years the wall has been used by over 10,000 young people. Though the events above and through working with local youth groups such as the Netherley Youth Centre and St Stephens Church. A special thank you is due to St Stephens because without their support with storage we wouldn’t have been able to use the wall this last two years.

Private Events

Our wall has even made it to a few private parties at people homes or local hotels over the years giving even more access to the sport of climbing.
