A magical new sensory facility has been installed at a Halton children’s centre, thanks to a charity grant.

Halton Borough Council secured funds for Halton Lodge by a charity called ‘Dreams Come True’ to completely update the room.

The charity usually awards ‘dreams’ to individual children who have serious, life limiting conditions, disabilities and additional needs.

Halton Borough Council Early Years Help Officer Angela McManus said: “Our sensory room, is ‘Community Dream’ project.

“We hope the new facility will enable us to welcome more families from special needs groups from now on

“We will also continue to welcome all families from across the community to use and enjoy the new space.”

Over a few weeks, existing equipment was removed and replaced with all new modern equipment.

This includes a new bubble tube, sequin panels, fibre-optics lights, UV carpet, a variety of interactive technology and more!

Head of Service Delivery at Dreams Come True Charity, Clare Messenger said: “What makes this Community Dream special is that it will support so many families in the local communities served by the centre.

“The refreshed facilities look spectacular and provides a great environment to increase the positive physical and mental wellbeing of the children and young people that use it.

“We would also like to mention and give special thanks to Sense Sensory, the company behind the specialist equipment design and installation for their invaluable help and support during this project.””
