We made history :)

by Karina

WMPC took the Accesible Community Games by storm on Friday 26th April 2019, enabling more than 45 people to have a go at climbing on Redpoint Birmingham's mobile climbing wall!!

Yes, we made history :) Well, we definitely helped make it in our own climbing and fun way! So what did we do? On Friday the 26th April 2019 we were a part of the first ever Accessible Community Games organised by Sutton Games. Despite some drizzles, occasional showers and some windy weather, we seemed to be a rather popular spot on the BMET Sutton Coldfield College grounds. As many as 47 new and not-so-new climbers had a go on the mobile climbing wall, kindly lent out by our fantastic friends at Redpoint Birmingham.

So we had fun and it seems that all our fantastic climbers did too! Thank you to everyone who came and climbed with us. We hope to see you on Fridays at Redpoint Birmingham. Get in contact and tell us you're coming. We're looking forward to meeting you and climbing with you soon! 

And one more thing: CLIMBING ROCKS :)
