Monday, 23rd October 2017

Dear reader,

 

Welcome to our July 2017
"Monthly Round-Up" Newsletter


Despite "Holiday Season" being upon us, we’ve all been busy here at Axia during July. Filming of the 5th Anime Amigos Vlog took place (to be published soon), and we had a wonderful Post-Diagnostic Support Group meeting. And although Linda and Carly were both missed, the Group looked forward to their return at our upcoming August assembly on the 18th.

We hope everyone enjoys this months selection of posts, which includes news items, Calvin’s cake of the month, reviews for the Axia Film Society and a book review by Renwick on Digital Kids.

Please enjoy and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
