: caravan home ; for refugees :
THERE are only 80 resident I adults in the Beacon Hill parish at Hindhead, Surrey, but hey 'nave perhaps one of the most original ideas to date to help Hungarian refugees.
Their plan is to buy a four berth caravan and invite a Hungarian family to live in it. Mr. and Mrs. Kirby have offered to "house" the caravan in a paddock overlooking he Punch Bowl, and the local council has given permission.
Essential clothing could be obtained from one of the national relief organisations and within a few weeks the family would probably be earning enough money to provide their own food.
For the first six or nine months, local Catholics would help the Hungarians to get used to the English way of life.
After that, the caravan could either be given to the people so that they could set up home on a caravan site, or the caravan could I be sold and the money used by the refugees to pay the deposit on a permanent house.
This ambitious scheme will cost the little parish at least £200 and they are now thinking up ways to raise it.
