So, so important. Everything about successful resettlement and especially integration with host communities revolves around learning the English language. Yes, funding must come from central government to support formal lessons. But community volunteers can also support tuition with conversational English practice. This is what we are doing with Oswestry Welcomes Refugees. It fosters confidence, friendships, crucially, aids employability and community cohesion and is hugely rewarding and enriching for all. Please sign if you can. Thanks.

Romping home with another rollicking great read. An affectionate tribute to his late wife Alex, John's latest easy read is packed with poignant memories, good humour and serves as a warning tale to anyone with the money to spare on indulging a passion for horse racing (or indulging a wife's passion for similar) that vets and trainers are the biggest winners - not owners and punters!

One of the most important letters of our generation. We cannot allow our pantomime politics of the past 4 weeks to leave these people behind.
