    Potton Town Council has formed a working group that includes representatives from the community to meet and prioritise how best to plan and welcome Ukrainian refugees to Potton. The group will meet early next week with the intention of immediately creating a network with anyone interested in supporting refugees whether it is in their own homes or for those who cannot offer accommodation and want to help in other ways.  This is the first step of many to try and alleviate the trauma of any displaced refugees coming to Potton.
