NAS Bexhill & Hastings are looking for a new committee member to help organise & attend our ‘Family Activities’.  Families living locally with autism have called our exclusive hire activities in the school holidays a life-line! Families often cannot access public places due to sensory overload in crowds, lack of danger awareness & inappropriate Behaviour. Judgmental comments from the public can make families feel isolated & alone.  We hope that in offering our Family Activities we can provide a place for people on the autistic spectrum to be themselves & for parents & carers to meet others in a similar situation. Full details can be seen here.

The Pear Tree Parent and Toddler Club has been running at Sackville Road Methodist Church for over 20 years on Tuesday mornings during term time from 9.30-11.30am.  We have leaders to run the group with support from the church. But we really need help with is the heavier work of getting out tables, chairs, boxes and equipment at the start of the session and putting it all away again at the end. Volunteers are needed for setting up at 8.30am and from 11.00-11.30 for putting away at the end of the session.  If anyone is interested or wants to know more, please ask them to contact Merle Bailey on 775991 or Revd Tricia Williams on 733137.
