Swansea beach

The rain hasn’t stopped people in Swansea having fun on the beach – thanks to the Quadrant Shopping Centre.

An eight metre by four metre stretch of golden sand has appeared at the centre and children have been making the most of it this week even as the skies outside have darkened.

Among those having a great time building sandcastles on the indoor beach have been cousins Jake, four, and Ellis Richards, two, who were there with their grandmother, Gloria Richards, from Fforestfach, Swansea.

She said: “They’re having a lovely time and really enjoying it. There are loads here, about 20 little ones all playing in the sand.

It’s a fabulous beach. We didn’t know it was here but as soon as they saw it they wanted to play and they’ve been here for an hour now having lots of fun.”

Sarah Temple, from Swansea’s Penlan, has been there this week with her son Danny, eight, and her niece and nephew, Taylor, eight, and Rowan, nearly two. She said: “It was nice to have a coffee in peace today while they were busy in the sand.

“They’re really enjoying themselves making sandcastles. It’s perfect for them and we’ll definitely be coming back.”

Quadrant Shopping Centre deputy manager Lindy Emms said of the new arrival: “The weather has been a bit miserable outside but in here the children have been having a lovely time.

“We supplied plenty of buckets and spades and they’ve done the rest and Thorntons are on hand with ice creams as well so the seaside has well and truly arrived at the Quadrant Shopping Centre in Swansea.”

The indoor beach has been provided by Beach Events who were involved in installing the 2012 London Olympics Beach Volleyball courts.

And the company has built “urban beaches” all over the country.
