Following the arrival of cocktail bar and events space Barons Quay Social, the development in Northwich is set to add children’s swimming lessons provider Puddle Ducks to its leisure offering.
According to newly-submitted planning documents, Puddle Ducks is due to take a 3,300 sq ft unit roughly opposite the Wildwood restaurant and on the approach to the development’s Odeon Cinema.
Puddle Ducks offers parent-and-child swimming lessons for children aged between one and 11, and has outlets in Greater Manchester. Classes on offer include aquanatal, baby and pre-school, and lessons for children aged between four and 11. The company will include a swimming pool, changing areas, and a reception at its unit at Barons Quay.
Although the deal is yet to be confirmed, if signed it will be the latest leisure offering added to the 225,000 sq ft retail and leisure scheme, completed by Cheshire West & Chester Council in 2016.
Along with Wildwood and Odeon, the 10,000 sq ft Barons Quay Social opened its doors earlier this summer. Last month, an attraction from the team behind Tattenhall’s The Ice Cream Farm also signed up for a 7,000 sq ft unit.
Set to open in early 2020, the concept will include an indoor play area and a 200-cover restaurant targeted at young families.
Brasier Freeth and GCW are the retained agents for Barons Quay. Other tenants include H&M, Asda, The Entertainer, and Sports Direct. River Island will also be opening after confirming a deal for an 8,500 sq ft unit earlier this month.
