On Target Autumn 2020 Newsletter

Each year we publish our Autumn Newsletter, we love putting it together, and this year we’ve given Members the chance to tell their stories and share what’s working for them. We’ve heard from The Climbing Hangar, The Outdoors People and BeVenturesome.

Sam Sutton from New Forest Activities has offered some great marketing expertise on how providers can improve their services. Ben at BXM Expeditions has also provided us with a really great piece on mental health awareness.

We’ve also heard from Save Your Outdoor Centres, Save Outdoor Ed and from the ABC on the Climbing the Walls campaigns and we hope that you can support these.

As we have been unable to hold any member events this year we’ve included a section on our Team and Directors of the Board so you can put faces to names.

Plexus Law have provided a update on safeguarding of children, young people and and vulnerable adults in organisations.  This feature also gives some case updates where vicarious liability is discussed.

We hope to see all of you soon at one of our Member Events when we can finally get together safely. In the meantime we will continue to offer the Zoom get togethers that many of you have enjoyed.

Please provide any feedback or questions you may have to cathy.watson@rmml.com

 

Government Guidance – National restrictions from 5th November

The following guidance is available from the Government website which includes information on the new national restrictions, including what they mean for working from home and business closures, why they are being introduced and the financial support available.

We understand that amongst the list of the businesses to close these will include climbing walls and indoor bouldering centres.  We understand that for many AIM Members this will be devastating news.

We are in contact with the Association of British Climbing Walls to support Members with information if available.

We continue to support the #Saveoutdoored and #Saveyouroutdoorcentres campaigns and urge AIM Members and those involved in the outdoor sector to do the same.
