SEVERAL Ukrainian refugees and their host families enjoyed a typically British picnic in a Taunton park.

Dozens of people enjoyed the afternoon event in French Weir Park.

It gave families who had fled their country following the Russian invasion the chance to meet up with compatriots, while host families were also able to get to know each other.

Meanwhile, a Facebook group has been set up to help find work for members of the families being put up in homes in the area.

Already several jobs have been posted on the Jobs for Ukraine site, but more potential employers are welcome to place their vacancies on the page.
