Splodge’s Under New Ownership


After working in manufacturing for many years, a Westbury woman has decided to go into business on her own, as the new owner of Splodge’s soft play centre.

Maria Cull, who worked at Knorr-Bremse in Melksham for 5 and half years before taking the decision to work for herself, has signed an 8 year lease with HPH Commercial Property on the unit which houses an array of play equipment for 0-10 year olds to enjoy.

Housed on the Woodland Industrial Estate where there is free parking for visitors, the centre has plenty of space for children to burn off energy, and is open all week 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, Saturday 9am-5.30pm and 10am-5pm on Sundays.

Splodge’s first opened in 2012, and Maria says she is looking forward to putting her own mark on the business which has had a flying start to the year.

She said, “Since I’ve taken over it’s been really busy. We’ve been holding lots of different events for children and their parents to enjoy and we’ve got lots of ideas in the pipeline. We’re looking forward to welcoming lots of families to the centre in the future.”

Lindsay Holdoway, Managing Director of HPH Commercial Property said, “Splodge’s is a popular business in Westbury and it is great to see Maria taking the reins and coming up with some great plans for the future.  The opportunities for children’s activities and the catering offer are assets to the estate as a whole"
