TEA-CUP COTTAGE: Kids get wild on the climbing frame.

REDLANDS children with disabilities can act out their Spiderman fantasies on a big spider web climbing frame in at Tea-Cup Cottage’s Cubby House.

The state-of- the-art play equipment has been funded by donations from the local community and is set to be the star attraction at an open day the service is hosting on Saturday, April 22 to give thanks back to the local community.

Tea-Cup Cottage director Alex Shaw said the climbing frame would help improve the coordination and motor skills of children who attended the disability provider’s Cubby Club service.

It was already proving to be a hit with Cubby Club youngsters.

“Our aim at Tea-Cup Cottage is to let children with disabilities be children, so this new climbing frame has simply added to the fun for our young visitors,” Mrs Shaw said.

“We are holding an open day a week on Saturday to show our appreciation to the local individuals and businesses who have generously donated towards the cost of this amazing play equipment.

“We’d love members of our local community to come along and find out more about what we do and see for themselves why children with disabilities have so much fun at our cubby club service.”

Visitors will be invited to explore the lakeside service’s scenic 1.6 hectare grounds, feed animals and enjoy play spaces.

A sausage sizzle and homemade cordial will also be available.

The event will run from 12.30pm to 2.30pm at 17 Honeygem Place, Birkdale.
