News update part 2

There is quite a lot of rumour and speculation about Ravens Ski Club planning to take on the running of Silksworth Ski Slope. I can confirm that we have had talks with senior management about a variety of ways in which Ravens can take a more active role in the slope going forward. Discussions are still at a very early stage and nothing has been finalised. There is no doubt there is going to be a degree of change for all parties to get to grips with however at present it is business as usual for the time being. Discussions are taking place with committee memebers and coaches on a variety of plans going forward. Whether a memeber or non memeber of the club, if you wish to express any views or thoughts or wish to be involved in the process going forward please feel free to give me a call on 07774843651.

news update

Will hopefully get to know on Monday whether the slope is open next week. There are reports of higher than normal levels of bacteria in the water system at the slope but management have assured me there is no 'legionella outbreaks' and are working to resolve the problem asap.
