STAFF at Malvern Outdoor Education Centre have been tipped for the top by the town’s MP who has vowed to help them hit new heights.

Centre director Nick Hands welcomed Malvern’s MP Harriett Baldwin to the centre in Old Hollow for a meeting with staff and users.

The centre was spared the axe when a private company took over the running of the popular venue in 2012 from cash-strapped Worcestershire County Council.

As well as finding out more about the success of the venture since then, Mrs Baldwin even took to the climbing wall during her guided tour.

The MP found out more about how the centre offers residential and day courses for local schools as well as offering team-building courses for businesses.

Brave businessmen and women across the country can try their hand at rope bridges, zip wires and other climbing challenges.

“I was pleased to be able meet with the staff who have taken on the challenge of taking over the centre from the county council,” Mrs Baldwin said.

“I am told the centre is well on course to return to profitability and I want to pay tribute to Nick and his team who are working so hard to make sure the we have an important facility such as this available to our schools.

“Every county student will visit the centre during their time at school so I am pleased to support their plans to improve facilities and bring it up to scratch for the 21st century.”
