1986 Tourism 5

  Kinderland opened in May 1985 on the 
 site of former allotments.  The land  
 belongs to the Council and is on long 
 lease.  It is essentially for under 14
 year olds. "Girl Fridays" supervise   
 the children who enjoy an indoor      
 ball-pool, roller-skating rink, giant 
 chess and draughts, and a water-chute.
 Redwood timber buildings tone with the

 two pounds per person for up to ten   
 hours.  Visitors there expressed      
 approval of all the facilities.
