The room, which is located in Hollow Lane, features different visual aids like lights and colours, and is set to help children and young adults with disabilities.

Little Miracles, which manages the facility, is a national charity that supports families with children who have additional needs, disabilities or life-threatening conditions.

The mayor of Ramsey, Councillor Doug McIlwain was invited to open the new sensory room on March 27.

He said: "This is absolutely fantastic news, not just for Ramsey, but for all the children and young adults that will be using it. It was quite emotional for me, to be asked to open the room and see all the little kids' faces.

A spokesman from the Ramsey branch of Little Miracles said: "We cannot thank our supporters enough for all the support they have given us to make this happen.

"Special thanks to the Ramsey Methodist Church for giving us a new home and also Rhino UK for the fantastic sensory equipment.

"I would also like to thank our local heroes Chris Day from Ramsey Technical and Property Services, Daniel Taylor, from Handy Property Services, and JA Carpets of Warboys, who have all gone above and beyond to create such a wonderful space."
