Town Council supports new club to help Ukrainians settling in the town

A new club set up to help those escaping the war in Ukraine to settle in Wiltshire is supported by Bradford on Avon Town Council.

The Bradford on Avon Ukrainian Club, launching on Monday, 9 May, is designed to be a welcoming weekly meet up for Ukrainians who have recently arrived in the town or the local area.

Held at The Hub @ BA15 (Church Street), the club will be a safe and comfortable space to meet new people over tea and cake.

The Ukrainian Club will also offer English lessons to those who want them, as well as help with day-to-day challenges.

Cllr Sam Blackwell said: “We are delighted to hear of many Bradford on Avon residents offering a place in their homes to Ukrainians.

“The Ukrainian Club aims to help our new residents settle in and feel part of our community, providing them with practical support and a warm welcome.”

Both adults and children are welcome, and there will be some fun and engaging activities for all to enjoy.

The Bradford on Avon Ukrainian Club will take place at The Hub @ BA15, Church Street, Bradford on Avon, BA15 1LS.

The first meet up takes place on Monday, 9 May at 3.30pm and will include a welcome from the town Mayor Cllr Katie Vigar. We look forward to supporting our new residents.
