Curling after Braehead – the way forward
A few weeks have passed since our last update on 18th December 2019, hopefully you have all enjoyed the holiday period.
We continue to develop our plans to provide Curling in Glasgow for next season, September 2020, and beyond.
We understand there has been much activity by clubs and other venues to explore their individual positions to continue Curling in the short, medium and potentially long terms following the closure of Braehead.
The Steering Group, led by Gary Macfarlane, continue to develop various options and are due to complete their report by the end of January 2020 in line with timescales all as previously communicated to you.
We would like to remind all Members that we will be carrying out a full consultation process on a number of available of options including the providing of a facility for next season, September 2020.
The Consultation Meetings will be held in the Management Suite at Intu Braehead on the following dates:
Tuesday 4th February 2020 @ 6.30pm
Wednesday 5th February 2020 @ 6.30pm
Following the Consultation Meetings Members will be provided 14 days to consider options and provide feedback. It is anticipated we will be in a position by the end of February 2020 to, in principle, agree on a way forward.
We have met with Greenacres Curling Club on several occasions and they are fully appraised and supportive of our timelines, end of February, to complete the as promised consultation process with you.
It is trusted we have your continued support and look forward to seeing many of you at one of the meetings as we look to share with you some vision and ideas for the providing of Curling in Glasgow in September 2020 and beyond.
In the interim if there are any questions please do not hesitate to be in contact.
