I WAS very impressed by the positive and friendly response I received in Worcester when asking people to sign the petition urging Worcestershire County Council and Malvern Hills District Council to show their humanity by playing their part in the international relief programme by making an application to the Home Office's Vulnerable Persons Relocation Scheme for the district to play host to a small number of Syrian refugee families (for which EU-funded grant support is available).

I would like to thank all those people who signed for their time and good wishes.
