Last cohort of refugees from war-torn Syria are welcomed by Southwell Minster

By Abigail Hunt

An extended family of Syrian refugees arrived in Southwell on Wednesday to begin a new life away from conflict, hardship and fear.

The family of adults and children were welcomed to the town by representatives of the Church of England’s Southwell and Nottingham Diocese and Newark and Sherwood District Council, who have offered them sanctuary.

They arrived from refugee camps in The Lebanon, where they have been living since fleeing civil war in Syria.
