Famous book inspires reception theme

8 May 2019

A glimpse of our Activity Centre display

Young members of our Alan Shearer Activity Centre have chosen one of their favourite books as the inspiration for the latest designs featured in our Centre's reception area.

Members and visitors to our Centre are greeted with a visual feast from the moment they enter the building and this season's Alice in Wonderland theme is no exception.

A huge picture of Alice graces the feature window, which is framed with giant playing cards, and a grinning Cheshire cat is cleverly disguised next to the teapot and tea cups. You can even catch a glimpse of some of the scenes from the book in glazed recesses in the wall.

The entire display has been created by our Activity Centre staff and volunteers with lots of little extras added by our members and visitors.

"When we were thinking about a new theme for our reception area, we spoke to some of our young visitors to find out what they would like to see," said Centre Recreation Assistant, Heather, "and Alice in Wonderland was by far the most popular choice."
