A new play centre for newborns and toddlers has opened with a mum-of-one at the helm.

Charlotte Moppett has launched Hugo's in Wymondham, named after her firstborn son, Hugo. 

She said the idea for the new play centre came from when she was on maternity leave and was thinking about her "next steps for the future".

"As a mum, I know how important it is to get out of the house, to see other friendly faces and meet new people, which is why I decided to start this new adventure," she said.
