Helen Grant Visits Kikiland

Helen Grant MP, the Member of Parliament for Maidstone and The Weald, visited Kikiland on Wednesday and took a tour of the new children's play centre.

Based in The Mall in Maidstone, Kikiland was created by Karl and Rohini Emanuelsson as a place where children can have fun, develop their creativity, and let their imaginations run wild.  The central location allows children to meet and socialise with each other, whilst providing a useful hub for busy parents.

Centred on a tropical theme, Kikiland offers birthday parties, themed rooms, a variety of play areas, and 'Baby Kikiland' for younger children.  The centre also promotes a healthy living ethos, with the cafe focusing on organic and healthy ingredients.

Speaking at the Launch, Helen Grant MP said:

"I am delighted to be here to help launch Kikiland.  It is a unique and innovative concept that is sure to provide hours of fun for children, whilst its central location will be a great attraction to busy mums and dads.  It was lovely to meet Karl and hear about his plans for Kikiland.  I sincerely hope that the play centre goes from strength to strength".

Karl Emanuelsson, Kikiland's founder, added:

"We were thrilled to welcome Helen Grant MP, and Cllr Clive English, the Mayor of Maidstone, to our launch event. We welcome their support in helping make Kikiland an integral part of the local community".
