A new all-weather under cover play area at Beer’s locomotive leisure centre has been officially opened.
Pecorama built the train-themed Play Station to help it develop as a year-round attraction and welcome local youngsters to cut the ribbon.
It was officially opened by Farhan Bhuiyan, the youngest pupil currently at Beer Primary School, and Tyrone Bird, its eldest pupil, and the Reverend Jeremy Trew gave his blessing.
Pecorama managing director Michael Pritchard said: “Having listened to our visitors, many of whom are local, we knew that we had to provide an indoor play centre to improve on our already popular children’s area.
“We are confident that Pecorama now has something for all the family.”
There are a myriad of features within the Play Station, including a three-metre-high racing slide, cargo climbs, a spinning floor, giant balls, clear decks, log ramps and much more.
Youngsters from Beer Primary School, Seaton Primary School and Beer Puffins had a sneak preview before it opened and gave their initial thoughts.
Puffins office manager Annie Thurgood said both the children and the staff had a great time and were so impressed as they slid down slides, squeezed through spaces and swung on swings that they didn’t want to leave.
“Pecorama is fantastic now,” said one, another added: “Do we have to go home now, I love it here?”
Pecorama bosses hope the new venue will be perfect for ‘letting off steam’ or enjoying a lively birthday treat.
