Stroud mums set to launch new family village venture


Two entrepreneurial Stroud mums have launched a Crowdfunder to fund a pop up role play village for families.

Daniella Harding and Lucy Thornton met when their children were just a few months old and immediately felt their was a gap in the market to find a play area for children that offered something a little bit different.

A Nuff Said was born out of their conversations and now the duo are hard at work to turn their idea into reality, Daniella explained: “We want to offer a stimulating and interactive role play village, allowing children to fully immerse themselves and fuel their imaginations; becoming vets, builders or shopkeepers for the day.

“To begin we will run a ‘pop-up’ space in Stroud, with a range of time slots throughout the day, to allow you to book at a time that suits you.

“The aim is to run sessions a few days a week in an easily accessible and comfortable venue, whilst serving delicious coffee and cakes.

“Our goal is to be open by the autumn just in time for when weather starts to turn that little bit wetter and chillier and we often find ourselves struggling for things to do.

“We believe that in today’s current social climate there is an even greater need to focus on the emotional and creative wellbeing of local families within Stroud.  

“We would love to create a welcoming and stimulating place for families to come together, that focuses not only on children’s needs but also on parents & caregivers, allowing them some well deserved down time, whilst knowing their children are playing in a safe and happy environment. 

“As the business grows, alongside the role play village, we would like to offer a range of energising workshops for all ages, ranging from baby sensory classes to workshops for teenagers; allowing them to explore their interests and get creative.”

What will the money go towards

  • The funds will allow us to source a carpenter to help design and build a unique children’s role play village, sit on ice-cream van and all the props. 
  • Start up costs such as venue hire, van hire and a storage unit.
  • DBS checks, paediatric first aid training and insurance.
  • Coffee machine to serve delicious coffee alongside a variety of local drinks and snacks.
