Lord Bourne Visit

Lord Bourne met with 12 of our local Roma friends at All Saints Church in the heart of Luton where many of the families live.  He came on behalf of the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government as part of his nationwide tour of faith communities in the UK.  The Roma shared with him their experiences of life in the UK with special regard to education of their children, the NHS, and the housing situation in Luton.  The minister was also keen to learn more about the Roma churches where they meet in Luton.  Also discussed were the plans Luton Roma Trust has to help the Roma people engage with the English language.  Read his letter of thanks below...
