Last week was a fairly typical week for Mum of three boys. On Thursday I took my three year old to a large soft play area, where he whiled away a couple of hours playing with friends. I had an excellent latte in a modern, atmospherically lit cafe. On Saturday I took my 7 year old to a classmate’s birthday party at a well equipped new facility. On Sunday I took my five year old to a disco party for one of his school friends where almost thirty children had a great time boogieing their socks off.
How many of us Mums have thought how great it would be to find a child friendly cafe with space for the little ones to play while we can chat or relax over a decent cup of coffee? Little Possets Soft Play is just one of the services offered by the venue. and runs between 9 and 2.30 on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The cost is £3 for the first child, £1 for siblings, plus a loyalty scheme gives the eleventh visit free. On Tuesdays sticky fingers runs alongside the soft play session from 9 until 12.30.Hot drinks are charged extra and at £1.80 are quite competitively priced. Their fancy espresso machine produces excellent coffee which is a big draw for me! Since Anne has been in charge of the coffee shop she has attracted customers from the general public, as well as mums and is looking to expand on this sector. Reasonably priced hot food is also available. and the cafe is open on weekdays until 6pmThe disco party room, the arts & crafts party room and the large soft-play hall can be hired on an hourly basis and are proving to be a very popular option with local mums and kids. The venue is also host to a number of independent children’s groups including Footlights drama, music bugs and the Rock Project.
I think we’re lucky to have such a comprehensive venue in town so if you haven’t visited yet you might want to give it a try. Any queries should be referred to Clare on 842461.
