All of our events and activities seek to support, reflect and welcome the diverse cultures that are represented in our area. We aim to make all of our events inclusive of all communities and welcome enquiries from any community groups who would like support in this area.
Conservation for Migrants
The Sunnynook based Conservation for Migrants workshops were led by Lyford Reserve volunteers and brought together Mandarin speaking members of the community who were keen to volunteer in the Lyford Reserve restoration but to whom language and lack of local environmental knowledge presented a barrier.
Welcome to Sunnynook
Approximately 50% of the population of Sunnynook at the last Census count, identified as Asian. We have recently worked with Sunnynook Community Association to create a ‘Welcome to Sunnynook’ information pack which was translated into Mandarin and Korean.
Our Summer fun welcome information is translated into simplified Chinese and we aim to translate posters for events such as our Active Ageing Expo, into simplified Chinese to encourage older adults from the Chinese community to attend. If you might be able to help us with this, please send us a message!
