Michael visited Buzy Bees Soft Play Area in Ash on Friday to celebrate its first birthday under new management.

Buzy Bees offers children a fantastic soft play environment and Michael was delighted to see so many children enjoying the facilities.

As well as the soft play area, Buzy Bees offers an after school club and a holiday club for parents needing extra childcare.

Michael said: “It was wonderful to see the children enjoying the soft play area and to see their parents and guardians taking advantage of the on-site café.  This thriving local business is offering an invaluable childcare service to the local community.  I would like to wish Buzy Bees the very best of luck for the coming year.”

Ash-cum-Ridley Fire Station

Michael visited the new fire station in Ash this morning and met many of the crew who live or work within a 4-minute response time to the base.

This is an on-call station with a single fire engine.  On-call fire stations operate by calling firefighters in when needed to pick up the engine and attend an incident.  When this happens everyone does their utmost to ensure there is as little disturbance as possible e.g. engines would generally not use their sirens as they leave the station.

Many of the firefighters that Michael met had been helping those in the area who had been affected by the recent floods in recent weeks.
