A PLAY centre on the Quantocks which was damaged by the wet weather is ready for playtime again.

Volunteers have been busy tidying up the Woodland Play Centre which is dedicated for play and learning for children and families.

Owner Louise Kennedy said: “After a wet winter the woods are starting to emerge again and damage to the tracks and trees have all now had a helping hand in their recovery.

“The compost toilet is still standing but the other toilet has been flattened by a falling tree and the only track down has been blocked also.

“Despite this clear-up work going on, we are certainly open for business again and looking forward to welcoming children to the playscheme at Easter and the family volunteering days.

“We are now doing professional training courses too so that we can continue providing this wood for everyone.”

Cllr Justine Baker added: “The Woodland Play Centre is a great place for children of all ages to be active outside.

“There is much evidence of how forest schools and more targeted outside play can help with children’s health and well-being.

“Louise has been running this centre with just help from family and friends.

“This centre is a hidden gem just two miles from Crowcombe and the activities and support Louise gives to children is magical.”
