It's a summer of superheroes, picnics and talent
August 9, 2023
Superheroes, princesses, picnics and talent shows top the programme for the Sherwood Centre this summer.
Service users and staff at the centre get together once a month to talk about ideas for events and activities that they would like to take part in.
In the most recent service user Voice meeting, the group came up with a few ideas ranging from a talent show to a dress-up day.
On Wednesday 23rd August it's planned to host a Superheroes and Princess themed day. People can either go into the centre for the day dressed as their favourite character or take along something related to their favourite character. People don't necessarily have to dress up though - a funky pair of socks will do too.
The Mansfield Woodhouse centre will also be hosting the Sherwood Centre's Got Talent show on the afternoon of Thursday 31st August. Service users are being invited to take part to show off their talent - whether that's singing, dancing, drumming or being a stand-up comedian.
A Teddy Bears' Picnic is also in the planning for a later date. Everyone is encouraged to bring along a packed lunch and, weather permitting, everyone will gather for a picnic in the centre's garden space. Bringing a favourite soft toy is optional. If the weather isn't great then the picnic will be brought indoors.
