“Most people live in small flats, it is like the Children & Young People have their own garden to play in” having the tuck shop is what made it inviting of us parents to come and sit and watch our play,having good food they would stay longer, especially during the summer, as it is only place where the kids can play free with so much choice on various activities and work shops.
