The War in Ukraine – A Statement from Councillors in Wednesfield North

The Ukrainian issue is dominating our screens, our news, and our conversations at the moment. Like many of us (Your City Councillors) Mary and I with Rita are keeping a close watch on the situation.

This international conflict will of course touch every nation in the West as it continues. We do have Ukrainians of decent here in our City, they have been here for many years, as we will have Russian families as well.

Supporting our own community cohesion here in Wolverhampton will, and is, a must for us here in our City.

The City Council will continue to work with our partners, inside and outside our City boundary along with community leaders, faith groups, and residents with regards to any emerging issues.

In the meantime The City Council is working hard to produce a statement with a response to the conflict on the 2nd of March 2022.

These are gong to be long difficult days for all of us as we watch and witness what is taking place in Europe. We are of course here in Wednesfield North for residents who have a comment to make or whom wishes to pass their views on My email address for these issues is
