Dancing Dragons sets play facility market on fire.

Former accountant Katy Falkingham (right) was so disappointed by the children's play site booked for her niece's birthday party that she decided to open her own.

As a result hundreds of youngsters are set to play to their hearts' content at Dancing Dragons, a play facility set up by Ms Falkingham at Rugeley, Staffordshire.

'We have converted two units in the Canal View Business Park in Wheelhouse Road to provide play and activity areas on three levels,' she said.

'There's an area for babies, another for toddlers and children up to four, our vast activity frame for children aged 4-12 and then a quiet area for when their energy levels fall.'

Dancing Dragons also has a kitchen and restaurant facilities to allow parents to watch in comfort when their youngsters let off steam.

Funding for the venture was obtained under the Cannock and Rugeley grant scheme which can provide qualifying companies with up to 15 per cent of a project's capital cost.

Margaret Cross (left) of Business Link Staffordshire, who helped set up Dancing Dragons, said: 'Katy is providing a unique facility in Rugeley and has employed a number of part-time and full-time staff.'
