A fantastic opportunity for Ukrainian families to connect and offer support to each other. Wednesday 22 June, 10-11.30am at North Herts Museum Cafe

Are you new to the area? Please pop along to the coffee morning at North Herts Museum in Hitchin on Wednesday 22 June.

Taking place in the cafe at the museum in Brand Street from 10-11.30am, it’s a fantastic opportunity for Ukrainian families to connect and offer support to each other.

North Herts Council liaises with the Home Office and helps inspect properties for Ukrainian refugees coming to the area.

Councillor Sean Prendergast, Executive Member for Housing and Environmental Health, said: “We know there are Ukrainian refugees in North Herts through the government’s Homes for Ukraine scheme, whereby people can volunteer to take in refugees fleeing Ukraine, and we want to help them feel as connected and settled as possible in their new homes.“

Although this particular event is aimed at Ukrainian refugees, everyone is welcome including any Afghan or Syrian refugees who we have also helped rehome in the district – there’s no need to book, please just turn up to the coffee morning, we hope you enjoy it!
