The Conquest Centre has a new wooden floor. Not very exciting I hear you say, but what a difference this new floor has made.
Before the floor, parents who brought younger siblings to the Centre had to confine them to their pushchairs whilst their elder brothers or sisters rode on the horses; not much fun.
Now with new flooring covering the old hard and cold concrete the children have a safe and clean place to crawl around and play on.
Fundraiser, Teresa Wort of the Conquest Centre said, “The mums have told us that the floor has made a huge difference; the children are now able to sit and play and enjoy themselves whilst the other children are riding. It is much more of a fun experience”
The new flooring came as a result of a donation from local company Somerset and Westcountry Stairlifts: At Home Mobility. The company felt there was a great affinity with their business and after a visit to the centre decided to fund this project for the charity.
Mark Grantham, Managing Director of the company “wanted to do something to help the rest of the family” after seeing how the current set up made visits by the parents, accompanied by their toddlers, difficult.
