The climbing centre ‘Clip n Climb’ which has activity hubs up and down the country has announced a shock closure of the Preston branch due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’.
However late last night, (Wednesday 27 September), the centre announced a shock closure on its Facebook page blaming ‘unforeseen circumstances’.
The announcement was to the upset of many as the post was instantly flooded with messages of sadness and well wishes for the centre.

‘Our last day of trading will be 31st October 2023.
‘We would like to reassure everyone that all bookings and parties up to this date will not be affected by this and we will continue to take bookings until the end of October.
‘We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our staff past and present for a fantastic 7 years of working with us.
‘We also want to thank all of our customers over the years. We have enjoyed seeing everyone use our centre, have fun and grow in confidence in their climbing ability.
