Church-goers and school children in Pocklington welcomed two special visitors to the town this week from Central America.

Julia Laguán de Ramos and her husband Fidel Ramos Gonzaléz are from the village of Puentecitos in El Salvador, a community St Mary and St Joseph Catholic Church in Pocklington has been supporting for more than three years.

Puentecitos features in the ‘Connect 2 El Salvador’ scheme, run by the Catholic aid agency CAFOD.
