Arcade’s £1.8 million extension given all clear
Good to see the local councils are supporting the cause.
KW Reader and Sons has been granted planning permission by South Tyneside Council for a £1.8 million, 16,000sq ft expansion at The Dunes amusement arcade in South Shields. The revamped arcade is set to include a giant galleon-style indoor play area, beach hut-style party rooms and an ice cream parlour, which will turn into a pizzeria at night. Managing director Kenneth Reader said the new areas will compliment the existing Dunes Bowl 10-pin bowling alley, which has been open for six years now. “My plan for The Dunes is a great range of quality facilities for people of all ages to enjoy – all under one roof,” Reader commented. “As well as the fabulous bowling alley and traditional slot machines, we’ll boast the biggest indoor play area in England, with fantastic facilities for mums and dads too.” He added that building work on the facility is due to start in September and is due to open in May.
