Appeal for Accommodation for Ukrainian Wheathampstead Residents
Does anyone know of a place (small flat) to rent, for a reasonable rent, in Wheathampstead or the surrounding area? A Ukrainian guest and her 7 year old son are looking to move on and live independently, he’s at school in Wheathampstead and very happy, and she works in Wheathampstead. Alternatively, would anyone be able to put them up till the end of the school year? (July). You could sign up for the Homes For Ukraine government scheme, which Herts County Council administers, and be paid as a sponsor. Please contact Jenny for details
