THE OWNERS of a Redditch play centre they will be able to bounce even further ahead of the competition after announcing plans to build a new state-of-the-art trampoline park.

And the project, revealed by Kevin Grubb and Matt Jinks who co-own Imagination Street in Astwood Bank, will bring with it up to 30 new full and part-time jobs.

After opening their first centre in Bromsgrove more than six years ago, Kevin and Matt came up with their second one in Redditch and will be celebrating its third birthday on Wednesday (November 25).

The pair are hoping to submit a planning application for the 10,000 extension at the start of December and have it up and running by the summer of 2016.

The building will have multiple trampoline bays, dodgeball courts, assault courses and sport zones. It will also have multi-functional rooms to hold parties, classes and meetings.

As well as general play, Kevin and Matt are hoping to offer adult fitness classes, host dodgeball leagues, hold toddler sessions and will also work with local groups for people with disabilities to see how they can also benefit from the centre.

Kevin said: “We are incredibly excited to be able to show to our existing, and future customers, this ground-breaking concept in children’s entertainment.

“We want Imagination Street to be the go to destination for children of all ages and also adults too.”

And the duo also want Standard readers’ help in naming the new trampoline centre with the person coming up with the winning name scooping a prize.

To suggest a name, people should ‘Like’ Imagination Street, Redditch, on Facebook and submit ideas there.

* Imagination Street is also due to officially open a new sensory area today (Friday) for babies, small children and youngsters with autism and other conditions who will benefit from the room.
