Constructed by Nigel Parsons Builders, the extension provides a more spacious entrance area for mothers with buggies taking their toddlers to Sharky's soft play. Sharky's also benefits from a new play area which will allow it to host two separate children's parties at the same time.

In addition, the facilities now include a wheelchair accessible lift to the first-floor gym, enabling wheelchair users to take full advantage of the new accessible fitness equipment which was installed over the summer.

The work is expected to be completed this week.
