First of all, for those who are hosting Ukrainian guests who have already arrived, we would like to be able to pass any information about get-togethers, a social club we’re hoping to organise, and other local information– if you are interested, please fill in this form so you’re on the list and can be contacted with any new information!
Public Zoom Meeting
To get an overview of what is happening locally we will hold an online meeting next Wednesday evening (Wed 6 April, 8 pm) to allow people to share information on local initiatives, and to hear from people hosting accommodation or providing other services to assist Ukrainian guests. We would also like to hear from any Ukrainians already living in Skerries.
Please contact us at skerriesukraine at gmail.com and we will forward a link to the Zoom meeting.
