Support for Ukraine 🇺🇦 – Most villagers will be aware that, following on from a point raised at the SVA AGM, a group of Shotesham residents got together to discuss what we, as a village community, could do to support Ukrainian people who are having to flee their home country, and sadly by the looks of things this need isn’t going away very soon. The good news is that a couple of our local IT experts have brought together a website where we can all share, and hopefully bring together the needs of potential refugees with the help that we as individuals and as a community can provide.
Please visit Shoteshamtogether at www.shoteshamtogether.org, Shotesham looks forward to trying to help Ukraine in anyway we can, please help by expressing your support. Many thanks to those who have worked to bring this to life so quickly.
However, clearly there are individuals who aren’t quite as supportive, as exposed by the vandalism in Shotesham and other local villages, where some, presumably mindless, idiots have painted swastikas on Ukrainian flags aswell as someone’s property! I say ‘mindless, but if the responsible persons are offended they are perfectly entitled to contact with their own viewpoint should they wish to. No desire to put photos of swastikas on this site, but an article on the issue is available on the EDP website. Shotesham’s response to this incident is to acquire and fly more Ukraine flags across the village in solidarity
