Amum who launched a play busi­ness last week said she got the idea be­cause her son had lit­tle en­ter­tain­ment lo­cally.

‘Runaround Ras­cals’ got off to a promis­ing start with it’s launch at Ruis­lip Manor Methodist Church on Thurs­day April 9.

Char­lotte Long, 29, wanted to start the busi­ness with her part­ner for two years but it was the birth of her son that was the real in­cen­tive.

She said: “We’re def­i­nitely fill­ing a gap in the mar­ket as there’s a few bouncy cas­tle com­pa­nies but noth­ing like this. There was not a lot to en­ter­tain chil­dren aged up to five in the lo­cal area.”

She said: “We’ve had re­ally pos­i­tive feed­back from the launch and good num­bers. Peo­ple were com­ment­ing how good the equip­ment was and how ro­bust it is.”

Runaround Ras­cals cov­ers par­ties and bookings in Northolt, East­cote, Ruis­lip, Ick­en­ham, Hilling­don, Uxbridge and Hare­field.

Char­lotte is com­mit­ted to ex­pand­ing the busi­ness and get­ting the weekly ses­sions off the ground.

She added: “We’re look­ing for an out­side venue for the sum­mer. We are do­ing a sum­mer fete over at Hare­field school as well. It’s a fundraiser day, so we’re vol­un­teer­ing our ser­vices for that. There’s quite a lot go­ing on.”
