Layden-Grant Seymour, whose family runs the 4 FUN centre at Saxmundham, said many made contact after the problems with the centre's Facebook page, emails and website.

However, Mr Seymour said his firm had now set up a new website and a new Facebook page.

"Customers have been phoning the centre constantly which means some customers cannot get through. This has fuelled lots of rumours. People think we are closing down which is definitely not the case - 4 FUN is now stronger than ever," he said.
