Festive fun at the Alan Shearer Centre

Festive activities at the Alan Shearer Centre

With Christmas fast approaching, there are lots of festive activities on the Alan Shearer Centre's calendar.

Regulars at our Live and Learn skills sessions for adults with learning disabilities have been trying their hand at making Christmas crackers to take home to put on their trees and have been busy in the kitchen, showing off their skills at mince pie making.

If you're visiting the centre soon, take a good look around the reception area. A Christmas elf has crept in and is hiding somewhere! He's been spotted once already, but you never know where he's going to get to next.

Staff, supported by their loyal band of volunteers, have decorated the centre ready for this week's adults' Christmas party – even creating a giant “gingerbread house”.

The party is this Friday from 5.30 to 7.30pm and it's completely free! There will be party games, music, dancing and a free buffet. Come and meet old friends – or make new ones.

Everyone is welcome, but it's very popular, so please call reception on 0191 267 8118 to book your place in advance!
