Last week work started on the PlayCentre Pre-School downstairs at 102 The Street. Hawke & Metcalfe estate agents (our tenants for a number of years) have moved a few doors down, and we have been granted planning permission for change of use of the former shop premises at 104 The Street. Over the summer, we will be knocking through between 102 and 104, making a double-sized floor space for the PlayCentre.

From September, Playcentre Manager Wendy Groussin and team will take up to 25 children each session instead of 15, most of these spaces have already been booked up by eager parents! This expansion also allows us to take younger 2 year-old children in response to a greater demand for spaces. We’re very excited about the larger space and will share some photos once the work is completed.
