A NEW soft play group for toddlers has struggled to take off in Chichester, and has been left empty for several weeks.

Sue and Tom Mortimor set up Jumping 4 Joy, which hold soft play sessions in Selsey, Bognor and Chichester.

Although the two seaside town sessions took off, the city group at the Swanfield Centre has been abandoned.

“We are struggling to get anybody to come to our soft play session at Swanfield Community Centre,” said Sue.

“We did not have anybody last week. We would be most upset to see this service stopped.”

She said it would be a ‘shame’ if the toys were to go to waste.

“For the mums it is lovely way to meet other mums,” she said. “It gives them a chance to get out.”

Sue set up the sessions after retiring from running a nursery.

The Chichester session is every Tuesday between 10.45am and 12.15pm.

The Selsey session is at the Selsey Centre, every Friday at 10.30am until midday.
Families.

The sessions are £3 per child, with discounts for big families.
