An Autism Awareness Day Event

A brief, personal account of an Autism Awareness Day event organised by NAS West Norfolk.


This is a brief post devoted to an event that took place at Gaywood Community Centre today.


As someone who lives in the centre of King’s Lynn there was only ever one way I would be getting to an event in Gaywood: walking. Although principally concerned with locating the event I did get one pic en route…


I heard the event before I actually saw it because they had a live music act performing…


After briefly taking in what was on offer I headed to the main National Autistic Society stall, picked up a flier and took some photographs…

I spent £2 on tombola tickets and £1 on a keyring (It was an NAS keyring featuring Thomas the Tank Engine – as an autistic railway fanatic named Thomas I could hardly not buy it!).

I did not stay terribly long, but I was very favourably impressed – while it was not really my type of event it was very vibrant and very well attended – well done the NAS. The homeward journey yielded another couple of pictures…

I will present these as a bulleted list:

Author: Thomas

I am branch secretary of NAS West Norfolk and #actuallyautistic (diagnosed 10 years ago at the comparatively advanced age of 31). I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.
