A great place and a great space for kids

I am not in the habit of promoting private businesses but today i will make an exception.

I was delighted to be asked to open today the newly refurbished children's play centre Clownaround which can be found at unit 2+3 109 Restalrig Rd . I helped the dynamic owner and manager Julie in a small way get things started a few years ago and its been a huge success.

The reason it is a success is that Julie understood from the word go that she was not simply running a business but providing something for her community, (she lives locally), that the community needed. She uses the business to support other local community projects like Craigentinny Playgroup and the Speaker newspaper. She has taken this attitude further by including a sensory room in her refurbishment which will be a great resources for kids with learning difficulties.

But most of all my kids love it and that has to be the best benchmark of a quality service. And if my word is not enough, here's review from another customer that says it all.
