Welcome back to our Activity Centre

16 July 2020

Some of our members enjoying the grounds

We're delighted to be able to welcome back members and guests to enjoy the beautiful outdoor spaces at our Alan Shearer Activity Centre.

With over an acre of accessible lawned areas and gardens and specially adapted outside play equipment, there will be no shortage of things to do and see. Even on a damp day, we have a marquee to enable our visitors to shelter.

However, before you rush off to book, it's important to be aware that a number of measures will be in place to make sure everyone remains safe:

· The Centre grounds are open Wednesdays to Saturdays only

· To make your booking, call our Centre on 0191 267 8118. There are three sessions per day and each booking will be for 1 hour and 30minutes

· When booking you will be asked a series of COVID-19 related questions

· There is a maximum of eight people per party

· On arrival, please ring us on 0191 267 8118 and wait for a member of our team to greet you

· Please do not arrive early so as to avoid contact with those leaving the grounds

· Although toilet facilities are available, the remaining indoor facilities at the Centre remain closed

“We understand how much our Centre has been missed by our members,” said Amanda Head, Director of Care, “so, we're really excited to be able to safely open up our outdoor spaces and begin welcoming people back.”

We hope everyone enjoys their visits.
