Intu Curling Facility at Braehead – Closure - Update

Statement from The Braehead Curling Development Group

We have now completed the two Emergency Meetings and very much appreciate the attendance and support, over the two evenings, of nearly 200 members and guests.

We also thank Scottish Curling, represented by Bruce Crawford CEO, for their support on both evenings.

The Members were again advised that the Curling Facility at Braehead will close at the end of the current season, end of March 2020.

Intu representative Scott Martin answered questions raised by the Members and Guests.

The Members and Guests discussed the options available to them for the 20/21 season.

The Members and Guests discussed a variety of long-term visions for providing Curling in Glasgow.

There was overwhelming support from the Members, Guests and Scottish Curling to explore the providing of a new/another facility in Glasgow or Renfrewshire.

The Meetings agreed a Working Group should be formed to move potential options to a Feasibility Stage and report back to members early in the New Year.

The Braehead Curling Development Group undertook to seek interest from members and individuals beyond who could bring certain expertise as will be required by the Working Group. Given the urgency to move to full Feasibility Stage the Braehead Curling Development Group will take the lead in forming the initial Working Group.

We would like to thank all who have attended the meetings and those who have separately reached out. We have no doubt your passion, expertise and determination to deliver a new Curling Facility to serve Glasgow will prevail.

We look forward to working with you all closely over the coming weeks and months.

Yours sincerely,

 

Alan Hannah

BCDG – Chairman
