Newark College gives warm welcome to Ukrainian families

May 09 2022

Ukrainian refugees and the families hosting them were invited to an evening meal at the College to socialise and meet each other face to face.

The evening was organised by Newark College and supported by Newark and Sherwood District Council to help the refugees feel part of the local community.

The ‘Social Eating Together’ event brought families together to share their experiences and to get to know one another. Almost 30 people attended and they were able to find out more about the services available to them in the district, while enjoying a free two course meal. Language tutors were also on hand to speak to hosts and visitors about the learning access available.

Councillor David Lloyd, Leader of Newark and Sherwood District Council, said: “It really is heart-warming to see the community come together for a special event like this as we welcome our Ukrainian guests to Newark and Sherwood.

“Those fleeing the conflict have been through the pain and agony of being forced to leave their homes and it’s something that no person should ever have to experience. It really is the least we could do to welcome them to the district and provide them with an opportunity to meet up with those who they share a similar background to and experience with.

“Hopefully, more events like this are planned for the future and I hope some long lasting connections have been made between members of the community which will last a lifetime.

“As a District Council, we are doing all we can to support families and those fleeing the war. We always will be one of the first districts to offer support when the ask comes.”

Penny Taylor, Lead for Education and Training at Newark College said, ‘We were delighted to organise tonight’s event and support those moving into our local community. There was a great atmosphere and this allowed our Ukrainian visitors and their hosts to meet each other and begin to build new social networks. Newark College will be offering ESOL courses to meet their needs and there are more events like this planned.”
