Pembrokeshire Climbing Club - History
The club was conceived in 1989 with the sole intention, originally, as a means of putting local climbers in touch with each other. Born out of a discussion between two of the founder members, the club was affiliated to the South Wales Mountaineering Club for a short while. During this period it kept ifs own identity.
At the 1992 Annual General Meeting it was felt that the club was strong enough to stand on its own merits, This confidence has been successful, it would appear, as the membership numbers have been good over the interveningyears. Three of the original founder members are still part of the club.
The club has the use of an indoor wall at the local Leisure centre which we have developed ourselves to try maintain interest and to improve skills.
We consider ourselves very fortunate indeed to have the best sea-cliff climbing in Britain on our doorstep.
We encourage youngsters, with certain conditions. We hold weekly evening meets during the summer as well as trips further afield. There are two official club meets in N. Wales, one in the autumn and one during the winter. Trips to other areas are arranged as well as others to N. Wales if required. Training days within the club are also organised.
We have adopted the Child Protection Policy as formulated by the BMC, and have appointed a Child Protection Officer.
The club's future looks bright and it has a keen and interested membership.
