Working through Suffolk Refugee Support.last year we helped three Ukrainian refugees take a course in English for their particular career so they could take up a position and become financially independent. One of these ladies said a few months ago that she had never seen the seaside in the UK and became the inspiration for our decision to take a group of Ukrainian ladies to Felixstowe for the day. Meeting in Ipswich we departed in several cars to this lovely town by the sea and had a delightful day together. Starting with a walk at the Spa Gardens, moving on to the views where the foot ferry to Bawdsey leaves, having the use of a lovely beach hut for our picnic where some of our party went for a swim, spending time at Mannings Amusements and Beach Street ‘Container’ retail area before taking the view
