Deck the halls at the Alan Shearer Activity Centre

December 2012

The Alan Shearer Activity Centre has helped everyone get into the festive spirit with two very different Christmas parties: one for its adult members and one for its junior members.

There was a "champagne" reception to welcome adult guests to a traditional three course Christmas meal of turkey with all the trimmings. Manager, Jennifer Taylor and her staff were kept busy making sure everyone was well served, before Recreation Assistant, Christine Starwart, revealed her musical talents leading the carol singing on guitar.

The children's party was entertainment all the way, with a magician, stilt-walking elves and face painting to keep the youngsters engaged until Santa's Grotto opened. Surprise special guest Alan Shearer turned up to see that everyone was having fun and to witness the work of his Foundation on this special occasion.
