PUBLISHED: 16:02 30 September 2015

People in the community are being encouraged to take an active role in providing help and support for Syrian refugees.

A public meeting will be held at The Station, in Exeter Road, on Wednesday, October 14, at 7.30pm, for anyone able to offer suggestions, or practical help for families fleeing the war torn country.

North Street resident Mel Argent is behind the initiative and says she is happy to offer a place in her own home and would welcome input from anyone else willing to do the same, or able to offer assistance in other ways.

Mel said: “There are lots of different things people can do.

“We are looking for active support and people to offer ideas and suggestions.

“The meeting is about people coming together to make a plan.”
