Leaders of the Month - July

We are pleased to announce that July's Leaders of the Month are...

Jamie Holding, Chris Radford and Simon Burke

Ogwen Cottage staff from left Jamie Chris and Simon This month we've decided to recognise three Leaders of the Month, and the many more who went before them, at Ogwen Cottage in North Wales. The centre closed this month after 50 years as one of Birmingham City Council's residential centres. The council made the decision to close all of its centres earlier this year, after a six week consulation process, in an attempt to reduce Birmingham City Council's overall deficit.

Ogwen Cottage was bought by Birmingham City Council in 1964, the same year the Mountain Leader Training Board was establised, and had been providing a residential service to Birmingham's students ever since. The centre was also a provider of Mountain Leader and Single Pitch Award courses which were delivered to individuals from Birmingham and elsewhere from a stunning base in the Ogwen Valley.

We would like to wish all staff from Ogwen Cottage a successful future and we thank you for your contribution to the outdoor community.

Other nominations received during July for Leader of the Month will be carried forwards to August in light of this unique month.

To nominate someone for Leader of the Month, email nicola@mountain-training.org and explain, in 200 words or less, why you think they deserve to win. 'Leaders' can be anyone with a Mountain Training award.

Each month's winner will receive a year's free membership of the Mountain Training Association and a Sherpa technical fleece.
