At the centre Latest news Half Term treat as Bus of Fun arrives! Centre puts on treat for kids during Whitsun week The Dorothy Parkes Centre offered something different during Whistun half term week and it came in the shape of an enormous ten-ton bus! The fantastic Double Decker bus offers mobile soft play area including ball pits, a climbing frame, a slide, and other soft play areas. We were able to offer two, one hour slots, 2pm - 3pm or 3pm - 4pm and we could accommodate 18 children each slot with a small charge of £2 per child per hour. The bus proved popular with our regular visitors and we welcomed a few new children on board too! The bus will be returning in the summer holidays on Monday 12th August - keep an eye on this page for details. For more details about the bus please visit their Facebook page here.
