Housed in temporary hotels, St Helens’ refugees get stuck into their new community
Baklava and new beginnings
Dear members — in recent years the number of refugees in St Helens has been rising. Many of them are still housed in temporary hotels, with cramped living space, restless children and uncertainty over when they will be found permanent accommodation. A cafe in St Helens opened before lockdown to give some of the asylum seekers work and help embed them into the community, while cooking up the best Middle Eastern cuisine. We went to sample the goods.
