Bouncy castle, fork-lift truck driving, face painting*
While Mummy and Daddy are enjoying a feast, the little ones can let off steam in the bouncy castle. Skill is required when driving the mini fork-lifts: stack fruit and veg boxes like the market traders. And with a bright butterfly on their cheek or a pirate face, the little ones can join the feast with their personal styling.
* The supervision is only to ensure that the bouncy castle and the children’s corner run smoothly. As parents, please take care of your children yourselves!
