For many years members of the ClimbNow team have helped deliver activities for Falkirk Council and then Falkirk Community Trust Outdoors. This has included outdoor activities for thousands of school age children, adults and seniors. This service is now in danger of being stopped completely at the end of March 2017 if a vote at the Falkirk Council meeting on the 22nd of February goes the wrong way.
As I understand it there has been no obvious consultation with user groups and no realistic opportunity for the management team to put forward alternative options in a reasonable timescale. If you have the time please take the opportunity to visit the Save Falkirk Outdoor Activities site ( https://www.change.org/p/save-falkirk-outdoor-activities ) for more information and sign the petition if you feel appropriate. If you feel strongly about this consider contacting your local councillor or MSP.
