Mactaggart Cybercafe

09 August 2016

150 people of all ages tested their climbing skills when a mobile climbing wall visited Port Ellen Green on a bright day in April. The event was organised by the Mactaggart Cybercafe with funding from Fourteen.

Transport was provided on the Saturday helping people to travel from surrounding villages. But the Rock Wall was so popular many people from outlying areas shared cars to bring family and friends. There was a lot of local support with many volunteers helping out over the weekend.

Little ones as young as 18 months had a go under the watchful eye of the instructor with some grown-ups overcoming fear of heights. The more adventurous had a few goes trying to make it more difficult by climbing blindfolded or single handed!

A lot of fun was had by all who enjoyed an almost festival like atmosphere. Many who participated are keen to have similar events or activities and even start working towards the community having a permanent climbing wall somewhere. So if anyone is reading this and feeling inspired about how that can happen, please share your ideas with Angela at the Cybercafe.
