Kempston Outdoor Centre’s climbing wall was reopened on Monday this week by Mayor Dave Hodgson following the completion of a renovation project for the facility.

The project has allowed the centre to replace sections of the old wall and have state of the art matting installed.

In addition to this, a bright vibrant colour scheme has been adopted to modernise its surroundings. The centre will also sell snacks, drinks and climbing equipment for the first time. 

The Mayor, Dave Hodgson, said: “It’s great that we have been able to improve the climbing wall, which is particularly popular with the children and young people who visit the Kempston Outdoor Centre. The centre offers a full range of challenging and exciting outdoor education and adventure activities which are enjoyed by the large number of young people who visit the centre across the year. I hope that the new and improved facilities available will help attract even more people to come along and experience Kempston Outdoor Centre for themselves.” 

Kempston Outdoor Centre offers provision in climbing for a variety of clients and has public climbing sessions on Monday and Wednesday evenings, from 6-10 pm, as well as junior and youth climbing clubs. 

In the very near future, the centre will also add ‘public climbing’ sessions to Saturday mornings and host a climbing club for under eights.
