Soft Play Centres Begin to Reopen With New Safety Rules

Soft play centres have been told they can now reopen, as long as they put in place a set of covid-safety measures first. Here is a round-up of what is happening at some of the local soft play and trampoline centres, as of early September. However, the situation changes daily, so please check and pre-book if necessary before you go.

FUN 4 ALL
Fun4All in Macclesfield, Chester and Bromborough in Cheshire has reopened. Russell Gardner, Managing Director, told Little Tigers that the guidelines focus on social distancing, cleaning and ventilation.

Some items have been removed, such as ball pools, soft furnishings and anything else that can not be easily sanitised.
