Our free Fusion exhibition of illustrations, music, photographs and poetry will be held at the Hive Music and Arts Centre, Meet for Belmont, Shrewsbury, from Monday May 29th to Friday June 26th 2009. All are welcome to attend! Mark, Isobel, Paul, Eric, Hannah and Danny will be showing just how gifted and talented people with AS are!

Go Karting anyone? Joe has asked if we could arrange a session of Go Karting at Rednal, near Oswestry. We have booked a Mini Grand Prix for 2pm on Sunday June 28th. This allows for 5 practice laps and a 10 lap race - with bottles of bubbly for the winners. Autonomy will subsidize the price by £10.00 a person if we get 8 people – the cost is £15.00 each. You will need to book with Sara and give her your £15.00 in advance. Transport can be arranged for those who need a lift and there is plenty of room to watch the race. We need to get there for 1pm. For information go to www.rednalkarting.co.uk Email or phone Sara if you are interested in going. Thanks to Joe for his suggestion!

We have been very lucky to have received new funding this year. We ran five paid sessions of training for the council. The Round Table gave us money for a new projector for our training. The Mid Counties Co-op has given us money for new display boards. We have also had a very kind donation from a parent of one of our members. This funding keeps Autonomy going and pays for the newsletter, website and administration. It keeps Autonomy free for our members.
