Family Weekend at Thomley
Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 June 2022
We look forward to welcoming you to our Family Weekend at Thomley, on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 June 2022!
This fun event is a great place to meet and share experiences, as well as attend talks and workshops to learn about Fragile X and practical strategies to help in day-to-day life.
This year sessions will include: medication and trials with Dr Andrew Stanfield; managing anxiety with Dr Hayley Crawford; fathers and Fragile X; 'Freedom to Thrive' project - setting up an inclusive community.
The agenda for the weekend is available below in FAQs (or click button below to download a copy). In addition to our programme of talks and workshops about Fragile X, Thomley has organised a range of indoor and outdoor activities for our members, around the site.
There will also be some activities which are bookable on the day, such as cookery and sensory room. You are welcome to join in with as many (or as few) of the talks and activities as you wish throughout your time at Thomley.
(Please note that for reasons beyond our control, we may need to alter the programme of talks and/or activities.)
One of our family members explains why Thomley is special to them:
"Thomley is a special place for our family. We'll often ask the kids "What do you want to do today?" They'll reply with, "Go to Thomley!" It is no wonder as it is filled with fun and exciting things to do. Each room is another adventure with lots of activities. From quiet calm corners to outdoor train rides and excellent ball pits. From an open field full of fun stuff to a music room jam packed with instruments. It has something for all interests and preferences. We're already counting down the days and can't wait to meet up with other members and swap stories and share similar experiences."
Spaces are limited and this event is likely to fill up quickly, so make sure to book soon if you wish to join us. We may need to run a waiting list.
