CHILDREN with disabilities can enjoy playing on swings and roundabouts at Ferring Country Centre after the opening of an inclusive play area.

The centre, in Rife Way, Ferring, officially opened the facility last Saturday, as part of a busy Easter events weekend.

The play area features special equipment, such as basket swings and a floor level roundabout, which allows children with disabilities to use them and office co-ordinator Sam Kirk said it had been well received by visitors.

She said: “The play area was put in using funds from the Three Forts Marathon, which is a Rotary Club event, which supports us.

“It is really exciting and it has been so popular ever since the opening.”

She added: “The Easter event was really successful, too.

“Normally, we would take a net of £2,000 at an event, but this year we actually took £7,000.”
