Ukraine stay and play
Apologies for the delay in reporting. Mead Vale hosted their first Ukraine meet up at the weekend. It was well attended and provided a safe, quiet meeting place for Weston's Ukrainian families to come together, chat, play and enjoy an afternoon tea together.
ELAN and Mead Vale provided space, refreshments and support and we had volunteers from both Mead Vale and Bournville Primary School (including one special person who came on her birthday to volunteer and had Happy Birthday sang to her in both English and Ukrainian which was a very special moment). Mead Vale's new headteacher for September, Mrs. J baked the scones!
But the real stars were the families, who did most of the hard work on the day and created a really special atmosphere. So watch this space, there will be more of these stay and play sessions held in the future.
