With the Government’s ongoing attack on refugees, it’s always good to remember that we live in a welcoming, diverse community. Our dysfunctional asylum system leaves refugees stuck in frequently unsuitable hotel accommodation without the right to work, subsisting on a meagre state allowance of £40.85 a week per person. This month, I hosted an Eid Party for some of these families at Agnes Riley Gardens. Thank you to everyone who came along but particularly to New Vision 4 Women, Ash Shahada Housing Association, and all those who painted faces, contributed gifts, prepared food and helped put a smile on everyone’s faces.
