Seven refugees from Ukraine are now known to be in Petersfield and the villages with many more expected.
A number of local agencies are co-ordinating efforts to provide a helpful welcome to them, supported, as ever, by the generosity of local people.
Steve Field chairs the Agencies Working Together group, led by Petersfield Town Council. He told Shine Radio’s Stephen Martin what preparations are being made for the next wave of Ukrainians who are likely to make their home here.
My name is Catherine and I have worked with refugees from nany shores, teaching English and befriending for a small charity in Portsmouth for the past six years and I was wondering if you do need volunteers.
I have many days and time to offer.
Please let me know if I can be of some help.
With my best wishes
Hello Catherine – we will connect you via email with the Agencies Working Together group here in Petersfield.
