Naimah Ahmed started this petition to Everyone Active

The climbing wall at Basildon Sporting Village has not opened since the beginning of the first lockdown, and it is likely that Everyone Active will permanently close it. While most climbing centres are very clear about reopening on April 12th, Everyone Active has no roadmap for the BSV climbing wall, and they're not telling us enough about what's going on. When we were trying to organise the reopening of the wall, management went very quiet. In this petition, we're asking Everyone Active to tell us what's going on, and to make plans to open up the wall for certain.

The community at this climbing wall is one of a kind. Every single person is looked after; we all work together to make sure that everybody is safe, and we give one another tips and advice to improve. Everyone is so friendly, and it's really easy to strike up a conversation with different members of the community.

We've all built many wonderful memories at this wall. For some of us, it was the first place we've ever climbed. Many of us have conquered the fear of heights, become stronger and made achievements that we never thought we could. Different competitions have been held at the wall, bringing the community together on a personal level. 

If we lose our local climbing wall, we'll have nowhere to meet up as a community on a regular basis. Children will lose their clubs, the instructors will lose their jobs, and newcomers may never find their passion. That's why we're asking Everyone Active to please consider just how important the climbing wall is to the community, and to each and every individual who uses it.
