An enthusiastic young boy has tackled his first job working on an executive board for a national play centre.

Harris Khan of Greenwood Avenue in Ilkeston, has become one of ten Little Leaders on the board for the Wacky Warehouse soft play centre on Tamworth Road in Long Eaton, who were chosen to help develop a new children’s menu created by children in addition to influencing future ideas for the play centre.

The seven-year-old met with his nine fellow members on Thursday at the play centre headquarters in Burton-upon-Trent after being nominated by his mother, Gemma Hall.

At the meeting he was able to work with chefs to taste brand new dishes, help design the style of the menu, meet senior management and test out new play equipment.

Gemma said: “Harris is a confident and bubbly boy and has the most spirited personality.

“He is both crazy and fun-loving so when I saw the advert I thought this would be the perfect job for him.”

The play centre partnered up with Fayre and Square pub, the Plank and Leggit, also on Tamworth Road to form the executive board of children aged between five and eight.

Harris also won a Merlin Annual Pass, a family party at his local Fayre & Square pub, and a Wacky VIP Gold Card.
