Alan opened the Creative Workshop in Melton on Friday 4th March. The company launched a community-based scheme in September 2010 which provides activities, such as art, music and drama, for people with special needs. People can pay for whichever course they choose and the activities they enjoy.
Alan said of the scheme, ‘There’s so much enthusiasm here and everyone clearly likes getting involved. There are some very talented painters and so close to my office – I’ll have to invite them in to redecorate!’
