Important message: “As a result of the current pandemic and recent Government advice, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the Abseil scheduled for 10th May 2020.
When some form of normality returns, we will try to re-schedule the Abseil. It is unlikely that this will occur this year for the following reasons:
We must hold the event on a Sunday.
We find suitable tides to avoid abseiling into The Firth of Forth.
We cannot hold the Abseil if a cruise ship is scheduled to visit South Queensferry.
We need a time of year when reasonable weather might be expected.
We avoid a clash of dates with other major events.
We require approval from Network Rail and Balfour Beatty.
We realise it is very disappointing for you that we have had to postpone the Abseil but please bear with us as we try to re-schedule.”
This amazing event gives you the opportunity to abseil from one of Scotland’s most iconic landmarks, the Forth Rail Bridge. We’ve partnered with the Rotary Club of South Queensferry so that you can experience abseiling 165 ft ‘free-fall’ (SAS style!), whilst raising money for a great cause at the same time. Registration for the event costs £30 with a minimum sponsorship pledge of £160. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
