Windrush Leisure Centre unveils new play area

A new soft play area was officially opened at Windrush Leisure Centre last Thursday following a £70,000 investment from West Oxfordshire District Council.

The new area has been built in the former upstairs bar, and features climbing equipment and slides for children up to the age of seven.

Rhian Davies, of Witney, brought her three-year-old son Nicholas to play with the new equipment last week.

She said: “There isn’t anything else like this near the centre of town, so it’s good to have it here. Nicholas really enjoyed it.”

It was opened by Richard Langridge, the council’s cabinet member with responsibility for sports and leisure, last Thursday.

He said: “I am sure this new area will be welcomed by children and their families, providing a safe, colourful and exciting environment for some of our youngest leisure centre users.

“We continually strive to invest and improve in our leisure facilities, to ensure they provide good facilities and services for all users.”

Peter Cheeseman, general manager of the centre’s operator Better, added: “We are delighted to be able to offer a new soft play area for local children to enjoy.

“It will provide a new fun safe environment for parents to take their children.”
