Love is in the air

Live and Learn regular Brian gets a helping hand from Recreation Assistant Jan

They're certainly a romantic lot at the Alan Shearer Centre. With St Valentine's Day falling on a Sunday this year ( the only day of the week that the Centre isn't open), they decided to bring the celebration forward not one, but two days!

The first thing you need, of course, is a card. So, this afternoon, out came the glitter and glue along with plenty of ideas to get everyone started. In true Valentine's tradition nobody would say who they were making their card for, but all may be revealed tonight at a special Valentine's Disco.

The Disco, for adult members, starts at 5.30pm with music, competitions, prizes and a delicious buffet until 8.30pm. The party is free and if you want to come, but you're not a member of the Centre yet, don't worry. Membership is free too and you can join on the night! (But please give us a ring first on 0191 267 8118 to book your place.)

If you have any energy left after all that partying you can come back tomorrow for a special Valentine's bake-off, between 12 noon and 2pm, when you can make some “love-themed” cakes.
