This year we are proud to support the Royal British Legion and their Poppy Appeal.
Each year we remember the sacrifices of our armed forces with remembrance services and the wearing of a poppy. From 5th – 8th November you will be able to purchase a Royal British Legion poppy when you visit 360 Play and each adult who donates at least £2 (Cash donations only) to the Poppy Appeal will be given free entry to the centre.
We hope that you will join us in supporting this worthwhile cause.
Discounted entry applies to adult admissions only

We’d love to invite PTA members from local schools along on Thursday 14th November to their local centre to meet with the 360 Play Team. We’d love to show you around the centre, grab a coffee on us and talk about how we can work together. If you’d like to come along all you need to do is pop in between 11am – 2pm and a member of the team will be on hand to help.
What can we do to help your PTA? We can supply prizes for fundraising events, all you need to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us when your event is and we’ll send out a prize to you!
We’re on hand to help with fundraising events too. Did you know you can hire 360 Play for exclusive use and sell tickets for people to come along? This is a fun and easy way to raise money for your school.
We also can tailor our packages to provide you with special group rates for visits, either as a school trip or as an end of term treat for the kids. We have something to suit all budgets so feel free to get in touch with our bookings team on 01908 247170 to find out what we can do for you or to find out more about our exclusive Christmas packages for schools.

Do Parents Secretly Love Soft Play?
As you scroll through social media, you will often come across a post from a parent commenting about how they are off to soft play ‘hell’ today and I think we’ve all said that at some point in our life.
But, do we secretly love soft play? I mean they are always full of parents, so surely we can’t hate them that much. I know on those cold, wet days I’ve been grateful to have somewhere to take the children, that is warm and serves a nice hot coffee.
As much as we would love to have dry, warm days, every day, the reality is we don’t. Often the thought of spending another day cooped up in the house, can make those the hard days of parenting. To have somewhere to go, meet a friend, let your child burn off that excess energy is a god send.
For many years as a parent you find yourself squeezing through the smallest of places as you follow your toddler around. Wondering what your life has become and seriously panicking that today is the day that you might actually get stuck!
But, then you see their little faces light up, as they master the slide for the first time or dress up as a firefighter and declare it the best day ever and you think it’s all worth it.
Then they get a bit bigger and more independent and over time soft play becomes your friend. As you no longer have to follow them around, but can sit and watch them. Giving them a wave, as you chat to your friend about the latest phase your child is going through, begging them for the answer. You even get to finish your coffee whilst it’s hot…..I know, this is a gift!
What I really love about soft play, no matter what age my child is. They are safe! If you’ve got more than one child, and they are both off in different directions it’s a comfort to know they can’t get out and end up in the car park. Yes, they might wander into the big kids zone, and show you what a dare devil they really are. But they call it ‘soft play’ for a reason, it’s soft.
You may even find that you love it so much, before you know its lunchtime and thankfully a lot of places now, including 360 Play, serve well balanced meals and pick your own lunches for children. There is no need to have a panic last minute, quick kids its lunchtime time to leave, which is often met with shouts of ‘I don’t want to leave’.
Yes, on a cold rainy day you may find that everyone else has the same idea as you and they are busy. But, soft play is a cheap day out and just think you will be rewarded later with either a brilliant nap from your toddler or a nice early bedtime from your child. There is no better reward!
In Car Safety Centre have proudly been at the forefront of children’s car safety since 1983. We are an independent child car seat specialist with three locations in the UK and Ireland – Milton Keynes, Essex and Belfast.
70% of children’s car seats are either inappropriate for the child, incorrectly fitted or incompatible with the car. This is due to lack of awareness and knowledge. We wish to change this in the hopes it will mean less children who are killed and seriously injured on our roads. We pride ourselves in being a fully independent company, who advise, explain and demonstrate our products in order to help parents make an informed choice about their child’s car seat. Our staff do not have ‘sales targets’ to meet, and we will never suggest moving your child to the next seat if the one they have is still perfectly suitable. Our aim is to find the perfect seat for your situation, not to make a sale. We also offer a fantastic after sales service meaning that you can come back to us at any time to have your seat re-fitted, or contact us at any point with questions and concerns. We want you to feel confident in the seat you have chosen.
If you are unable to come in store to avail of our fitting and advice, you can purchase many of our products online. We aim to be ‘responsible’ both in-store and online. You will notice that when you make a purchase online, we ask for certain information that will allow us to confirm, using our knowledge and experience that the seat you have chosen is suitable for your child, and for the vehicle it will be used in. Our newly redesigned website offers lots of useful safety information to answer all of your questions, and hopefully make the world of car seats a little less confusing.
We are delighted to be partnering up with 360 Play. We want to spread the word on car seat safety and make safety fun. Some of you may also know that we are specialists in additional needs car seats and products, so we are excited to get involved in 360 Play’s SEN evenings where we can help with expert advice. We are really looking forward to this partnership.
