Help for Ukrainian Refugees
Councillors are following the terrible situation in Ukraine and the subsequent flow of large numbers of refugees into other European countries. We have now received the following advice from Council advisors: 'If there is an influx of refugees then the principal councils will lead. It may be that parish councils are asked to help disseminate communications, such as a call for temporary accommodation, or for assistance in making community buildings available. For obvious reasons it is important that the effort is properly and safely co-ordinated, and that will be the role of the government and the unitary councils, as it has been with the resettlement of Afghan refugees.'The Parish Council will make plans for readiness in case the parish is called on for assistance and we will contact residents if help is needed.
