We are delighted that Richard from The Engine Shed in Streatham brings his trains to some of our special sessions!
The Engine Shed - South London is a special interest group for children and young people with autism who like trains. They can play, talk and enjoy their interest in a welcoming, safe and relaxing environment. Children can both play with existing sets or build their own layout.
They have loads of Brio, Ertl and Tomy layouts to play with.
This activity takes place in different venues:
On Wednesday 20th November and Wednesday 18th December 2019, from 3pm to 5.30pm, it will be at:
All Hallows Church
This church hall is off Whitton Road, which leads from Twickenham station to the A316.
There is plenty of free on-site parking. Access to the church hall’s car park which is at the end of Erncroft Way. Please do not park in Erncroft Way and please do not pull into the church’s own car park which is off the A316, as this is for weddings and funerals only!
All Hallows is 10 minutes walk from Twickenham railway station. From Twickenham station you can also get the 281 bus towards Hounslow and get off near Ricardo's Wines.
The 281 (Hounslow to Kingston) stops on the Whitton Road near the end of Erncroft Way, just a two minute walk from All Hallows.
