Bromsgrove District Council agrees to hold talks over taking in Syrian refugees

Bromsgrove Editorial 25th Sep, 2015 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016

A MOTION to organise talks on Bromsgrove receiving at least 12 refugee families over the next year was carried at the latest full council meeting.

It was agreed, on Wednesday (September 23), that the leader of Bromsgrove District Council Coun Margaret Sherrey would meet with Worcestershire County Council’s leader Coun Adrian Hardman to speak and agree on the support required to offer sanctuary to the Syrian people.

Coun Peter McDonald said the UK was the fourth richest country in the world and there was no reason why the district should not help families in desperate need of help.

Coun Sherrey said she was more than happy to support the motion.
