A play café with craft stations and a role-play town is opening in Thetford. 

Mother-and-daughter team Sally Knight and Mione Rayson launched the new venture, called The Playroom, after leaving their careers in teaching.  

Mrs Rayson said: "Me and mum have always wanted to go into business together and we thought 'now's our chance'."

It is aimed at parents with children up to the age of seven and offers a range of different zones including a dressing-up corner and role-play town. 

The duo will also include a supervised arts and crafts station with finger painting and drawing.

Mrs Rayson said: "All the toys will be classic wooden Montessori-style so children can explore their natural interests and activities.

"We also want to focus on inclusivity with a separate room as a 'calm down space', we'll have a black-out tent as well that gives children and parents some time away."

As the kids play, parents can relax in the café, serving homemade cakes, bakes and biscuits as well as a selection of hot drinks.

The Playroom will have an opening event on Sunday, February 18 before launching for half term in 11 Riverside Walk.
