More Live and Learn

December 2011

Live and Learn, our programme of activities for adults with disabilities who attend with carers, has increased its hours to include every Friday from 10.30am to 3.15pm.

This means that the course is now available on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Wednesday mornings every week.

Members who attend our Live and Learn courses are able to enjoy a range of fun and educational activities including: baking, arts, and lots of different crafts. Each week we make sure that our planned activities are completely different, so that our Live and Learn members always have something interesting and stimulating to get their teeth into.

The programme also includes regular guest spots for interesting speakers, such as members of the Fire and Rescue Service, who joined us recently.

On a typical day, attendees will enjoy three courses, and have time for lunch in Browne's café. The cost of a daily place is £20 per delegate, and includes all the equipment and materials used in the activities.

In order to book a place please ring the Alan Shearer Activity Centre reception on 0191 267 8118 or email
