Hats off to everyone at the Alan Shearer Centre!

Easter bonnet making

Easter preparations were in full swing this week as bonny bonnets and beautiful boaters were being designed for the festive season.

The Alan Shearer Centre was inundated with budding milliners on Tuesday making their own personal headwear for the occasion. Using an array of Easter-themed craft materials supplied by the Centre the children's and adults' bonnet-making sessions saw the creation of hats adorned with chicks, eggs, rabbits and Easter messages.

There are more arts and crafts activities planned for Thursday, 17 April, when children are invited to make their own Easter baskets, before our Easter fun day on Bank Holiday Monday when the Scales and Tails touring zoo will be visiting.

The Centre is currently decked out with Easter bunting, daffodils and bunny pictures and it's worth a trip to our on-site cafe Browne's where there are chocolate egg cupcakes on sale!
