A patchwork quilt created to welcome refugees to West Oxfordshire was seen by some of the most powerful politicians in the land. The design, spearheaded by Witney Refugee Action Group, formed part of the Museum Without a Home exhibition in the Houses of Parliament in London last Wednesday.
Mr Courts was one of several MPs to stop and admire the creation and Liz Duncan, of Witney Refugee Action Group, believes the quilt's message came across.
Mr Courts said: "It was a privilege to see the welcome, open community of Witney represented here in Parliament. I am pleased to have played a small part in this project, which sends the message that all are welcome in West Oxfordshire, where you can make your home, join our community and help our area continue to thrive."
