Lady Allen holds a special place in my heart as it’s the only place I could relax with my son when he was a toddler - we used to attend the mixed access sessions. Made a change from standing at the fence watching trains go up and down!
It was lovely to be able to talk to other parents of kids like mine.
Unfortunately I was never able to use it for sessions when he was older as we lived just over the boarder in Lambeth, so son went to Charlie Chaplin in Kennington (also good but not a patch on Lady Allen at that time). I always found it nuts that although I worked in Northcote Road, I would have to take public transport to Kennington to access holiday play facilities! Still, at least we had something to take our kids too. I don’t think people realise how limited play facilities are for disabled kids.
