“We’ve had to close a few things due to Covid – as you can’t wipe them down enough but we’ve done what we can, putting hand sanitisers up and making things safe.

“There’s plenty of space as its outdoors.

“One of the things we’ve enjoyed is that we’re getting kids outdoors experiencing nature, which for lots of kids this isn’t happening as much. So we’re pleased to get them outside in the outdoors and exercising.”
