A NEW soft play facility in Dunfermline city centre has celebrated its official opening.

The launch ceremony for Zac's Cafe at Viewfield Baptist Church took place on Friday ahead of the public being welcomed in later this month.

Pete Hutchison, from the church's leadership team, said at the event: "Our vision for Zac’s Cafe is that it will be an extension of the ministry of Viewfield Baptist Church, sharing the love of Jesus with the local community in a loving and practical way.

"Zac’s Cafe will provide an affordable community café in conjunction with soft play equipment and a sensory facility.

"The cafe will be a place where everyone will be made welcome, with an opportunity to meet other families and where adults can enjoy friendship, support and encouragement, while their children play."

The cafe itself will sell light snacks, drinks, and coffee at affordable prices while the soft play equipment will be available for children aged between two and nine years old.

There is also a separate sensory room included within the soft play area which will benefit children, young people, and adults with additional needs.

The facility will also be made available for external bookings outwith ordinary opening times.

The creation of Zac's Cafe was supported by £34,000 of grant funding with thanks given to Carnegie Dunfermline Trust, Russell Trust, Hugh Fraser Foundation, Souter Charitable Trust, Scottish Property Industry Festival of Christmas, and Stephens Bakery Foundation.

The facility will be open to the public from May 10 three days a week; Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 10am until 4pm, and Fridays, between 10am and 5.30pm.
