Finally something for us... I hope that we will have settled in Ripley by then.
What time is the meeting? How old are your kids? My Dominik is only 14 months so I hope that there will be something for him to do there.

Will do.

Hulababy Mon 23-Feb-04 15:39:51

I hope everyone can make it; sounds like it should be fun.

Dd will be just 2 years by then (her birthday is the Monday of that week) but as RB says, there will be children of all ages there. DD has loved soft play from before a year old!

fairydust Mon 23-Feb-04 16:01:02

Plant Happy

£3.50 per child -

In half term it is 2hours play only

open from 9.30 - 6pm

Gets very busy in half term so earlier the better

We've been there with DD lots and she loves it.
It's got a seperate are for the smaller children

Serves nice food and amazing capuchino.

It is diectly off the A38 ripley junction -5mins from it.

JanHR Mon 23-Feb-04 16:10:56

Right,I have just spoken to Joanne @ Planet Happy.

If there are 10 or more chldren they will give us a special rate of £2 per (walking) child. This includes a drink and snack.

The price is usually £ per child if they are walking, or Free if not walking.

The price is for 2 hours.

She has suggested that as it is the holidays that we get there for them opening at 9.30am.

FD - I asked if there is a reduction for children with CP, she has said that they will sort that out on the day, so you may get it cheaper or free.

I have said that I will confirm the numbers nearer the time so can we please have definite replies by ther monday of that week.

JanHR Mon 23-Feb-04 16:11:51

THat will teach me to preview first. That should read £3

Hulababy Mon 23-Feb-04 16:13:28

Sounds good to me; and I am sure I can manage 9:30!!! Might have to put the alarm on though

JanHR Mon 23-Feb-04 16:24:33

JUst spoken to DP, WE are going away on Good Friday, Si I will be able to make it after all.

RB - DP has said that he may come along to if he is not working. If he can't make it can I please have a lift. RAC route planner satys it take about 40 minutes from mine.

mez75 Mon 23-Feb-04 16:54:53

This sounds like fun, but I am not sure DS & I will be able to make it as we would have to come on train and if we need to be there for 9.30 I'd have to leave at the crack of dawn. Have a nice time though! :0

mez75 Mon 23-Feb-04 16:56:13

That thing on the end was meant to be a smile i will try again :0

mez75 Mon 23-Feb-04 16:57:02

Oh I give up! Stupid smile thing i am sending you a smile.

Hulababy Mon 23-Feb-04 16:57:11

Where will you be coming from Mez?

We can also make it later - I am sure it can't get THAT busy can it? FD, do you know?

mez75 Mon 23-Feb-04 18:46:56

Coming from Great Barr so would get a train from Birmingham. I will look at train timetable and see how long it takes!
