Refugee Week takes place every year across the world in the week around World Refugee Day on the 20 June. In the UK, Refugee Week is a nationwide programme of arts, cultural and educational events that celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK, and encourages a better understanding between communities.

Refugee Week started in 1998 as a direct reaction to hostility in the media and society in general towards refugees and asylum seekers. An established part of the UK’s cultural calendar, Refugee Week is now one of the leading national initiatives working to counter this negative climate, defending the importance of sanctuary and the benefits it can bring to both refugees and host communities.

The aims of Refugee Week are:

  • To encourage a diverse range of events to be held throughout the UK, which facilitate positive encounters between refugees and the general public in order to encourage greater understanding and overcome hostility
  • To showcase the talent and expertise that refugees bring with them to the UK
  • To explore new and creative ways of addressing the relevant issues and reach beyond the refugee sector
  • To provide information which educates and raises awareness of the reality of refugee experiences

Our ultimate aim is to create better understanding between different communities and to encourage successful integration, enabling refugees to live in safety and continue making a valuable contribution.

I have recently been in contact with National Rail regarding some changes in access to Splott Road Bridge and Adamsdown Foot Bridge whilst electrification work is on going.

Splott Road Bridge

The road will be closed to all vehicles from 13 August. Network Rail are aiming to reopen the bridge on 4 September.

There will be no pedestrian access over the bridge between:

20:00hrs on 19 August – 11:00hrs on 20 August

07:00hrs on 22 August – 19:00hrs on 22 August

07:00hrs on 23 August – 00:01hrs on 25 August

23:00hrs on 25 August – 13:00hrs on 28 August

During these times, a minibus service, with wheelchair access, will be available to transport members of the public from one side to the other.

The second reconstruction phase will commence in early 2018.

Cathays Labour Councillor Ali Ahmed and members of the Muslim community have invited everyone in Cardiff to join them at two special events to celebrate Ramadan Iftar, breaking fast.

Supported by Cardiff Council, the community events are set to take place outside City Hall on Friday, June 16 and Friday June 23, between 9pm and 10pm. 

As part of the Holy Month of Ramadan, Muslims fast during the day, breaking their fast with Ramadan Iftar each night at sundown, and it is customary to invite neighbours to share in the celebrations.

Along with extending an invitation to everyone in the city, the organisers are particularly keen for the community events to benefit some of Cardiff's most vulnerable, and the celebrations have been co-ordinated with the Salvation Army so that homeless people in the city can enjoy a meal and be a part of Ramadan Iftar. A special invitation is also being offered to the refugees resettled in Cardiff.

On Sunday 18th June, Brewery Park in Adamsdown will be hosting a picnic for walkers taking part in the Great Big Walk. 

What is The Great Big Walk?

The Great Big Walk is an idea from the Eden Project funded by the National Lottery and other supporters. On 29 May, 5 teams of walkers will make their way from Batley to Cornwall, London, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to arrive home in time for their Big Lunch on 18 June.

Along the way they’ll visit community groups and projects, shining a light on ordinary people going the extra mile to bring people together. 

The picnic begins in Adamsdown at 12 noon on Sunday - and on the day there will be a range of activities including yoga, hula hooping, information on community growing and we will also be joined by the fantastic samba band, Barracwda. 

Organisers are encouraging local residents to come along and share their picnics with their neighbours in the park. 

For more information, and to follow the walker's progress, you can search #GreatBigWalk on Twitter.
