Nidderdale Community Sponsorship – Syrian family has arrived

At long last a Syrian refugee family has been welcomed to their new home in Nidderdale. They arrived this week after a mega flight and are now settling in to their new house and starting to explore the neighbourhood. A huge thank you to all the people who have supported our efforts to raise money, fill in the complicated forms, arrange English lessons, contact school and all the other things that go with starting a new life in a safe new country. Special thanks to everyone who has donated furniture and equipment and to the people giving their time to help fix up the house, practice English conversation and show the family the ropes of the wonderful 24 bus!!
