Dame Angela Watkinson was given a tour of a new activity centre for people with learning and physical disabilities.

The Hornchurch and Upminster MP visited Lilliputs Activity Centre in Wingletye Lane, Hornchurch recently.

She said: “I was delighted to visit the CMG Lilliputs Activity Centre. The centre is doing some really important work in addressing the shortage of facilities for people with learning disabilities in the area and it’s a fantastic space for the local community to use.”

The centre, which helps people with learning disabilities to develop life skills, was opened in May this year.

The MP was able to see all the centre had to offer, including the therapeutic hydrotherapy swimming pool, the soft play area and the sports hall – all of which have been specially designed to offer physical and mental stimulation for those with learning disabilities.

Peter Kinsey, Chief Executive of CMG, said: “We’re all really proud of the centre and it’s great to have Dame Angela’s wonderful support.”
