Summer fun inside and out

5 August 2019

Service users enjoying some activities at the Alan Shearer Centre

Members and their guests have enjoyed a sensory safari of colours, textures and fragrances at some of our free summertime activities at our Alan Shearer Activity Centre.

Tiny seeds have been nurtured into delicious crops, fragrant herbs and colourful flowers as our visitors have made the most of the good weather outside in our gardens.

All the fun and colour of summer has spread indoors, too, with vibrant pinwheels being made in our craft sessions and seaside sand, shells and fishy pictures being turned into 3D works of art.

"It's been magical watching everything grow from seed, and especially exciting to see how tall our sunflowers are growing," said our recreation assistant, Heather. "Everyone loved the beach-themed arts and crafts, too – it's like a little piece of the seaside, inside."

Don't worry if you've missed our free activities so far, there's plenty more lined up to keep you busy during the summer holidays. Just click on the link on our Alan Shearer Centre home page for our latest leaflet or give our friendly staff a ring on 0191 267 8118.
