ASNA respite & training weekend 2010

A great time was had by all who attended the 2010 ASNA respite and training weekend.  With glorious sunshine and wonderful company, many were heard asking why the weekend had to end. This year saw the greatest number of attendees, 125 families, volunteers and leaders  from all over the country Reading, Nottingham, Oxford, Bracknell, Birmingham and many more!

Delgates attending for the first time were asked to express thier experience. A carers who attended with her son said she 'didn't want to leave'..she felt great and will definately come back next year! Another parent carer expressed her initial apprehension about the weekend which was soon swept away by  her experience of a 'family spirit and the sense of freedom as her son who is usually seen as difficult by other church members, was welcomed and seen to be  like all other children.

The health workshops, songs, experience sharing  by the campfire and the fun activities for the children provided opportunity for families tomeet new friends and have a short break. The ASNA Extra General Meeting on the Sunday morning enabled trustees to engage with ASNA members to determine thier interests, concerns and ideas for the future of ASNA.

ASNA family weekend 2011 will be held in Northampton at the Frontier centre in April. More details will follow closer to the time.
