A Leicestershire farm park is about to reopen its indoor play area.
Windmill Farm Park at Kibworth will be welcoming customers to the indoor attraction once again from Tuesday, September 1.
The play area, which is more than 10,000ft2 in size, features a reconstruction of the old post mill on the farm. Children are able to turn the sails, raise bags of wheat and send them down the shoot.
The interactive play area has three levels for children to play on, and there is a dedicated under 2s area to provide a safe environment for little visitors, with padded stable buildings and a slide.
It will give you regular email updates on the latest from restaurants and bars in Leicestershire.

A number of changes have been made to the attraction to ensure the safety of visitors and staff.
Everyone must sanitise their hands before entering the indoor barn and play areas and those over the age of 11 and who are able to are asked to wear face coverings (except when seated at a table eating).
The number of visitors will be strictly controlled and all visitors must pre-book online.
If you book the 10am arrival time, you will have access to the play barn from 10am until 11.30am. There will then be a 30 minute break where everyone must exit the barn to allow staff to clean and sanitise the play area.
The 12pm arrivals will have until 1.30pm, and the 2pm arrivals will have until 3.30pm.
After your slot in the play barn, you are able to stay for the rest of the day and visit the other areas of the farm and see the activities.
The indoor café will be open during these slots serving hot and cold drinks, snacks, cakes, a small selection of hot food and ice cream for people in the play barn. However, it will be closed during cleaning times.
To help protect staff, visitors are asked to clear their tables as much as possible, putting items into the rubbish and recycling bins.
For their own safety, visitors are asked to wait until staff have cleared and sanitised a vacated table before sitting down.
Children must be supervised closely and follow the arrows on the main play area to help with social distancing.
They must only go up ladders and down slides.
A maximum of eight people will be allowed in the under 2s area at any one time (adults and children). Socks must be worn on the play area, and long clothes, covering knees and elbows.
An extensive cleaning regime has been introduced, using products that produce hostile surfaces for Covid-19, and a three times a day sanitising and fogging regime.
A new ventilation system has been installed to massively increase the airflow. During each cleaning session the air inside the barn will be completely replaced.
