Remembering Dylan Hockley

Dylan Hockley had attended school in Eastleigh in Hampshire before moving to America. He was one of the children killed in the Sandy Hook Massacre in the USA last December.

Today friends of the family have organised a fun day to remember Dylan but also to raise awareness of Autism. Dylan was diagnosed with autism before he left the UK. His parents Nicole and Ian will be at today's fun day.

Dylan left us 6 months ago and we really want to give a positive outlook to our loss. This day will help other autistic children across our area as well as raising awareness of the condition."

– Lin Trott, family friend
