A youth group is set to reach new heights after a new climbing wall was installed.
Blyth Sea Scouts were given a donation towards the purpose-built bouldering wall by Procter & Gamble’s (P&G) Community Matters fund.
The colourful rock face is now used by children in the scout group, aged six to 14-years-old.
It is also available, subject to booking, to the community.
Scout leader Jonny Aisbitt said: “We feel lucky to have such a fantastic facility for our scouts.
“Climbing is a sport that everyone can do – the younger children get involved and even the adults join in.
“The wall offers colour-coded routes for different abilities and it can be used in all sorts of weather. Since we got the wall some of our scouts have taken climbing to a more serious level.”
P&G’s Val Burt said: “It is lovely to see so many children enjoy something we fundraised for.”
