Windrush Day- Monday 22nd June 2020

posted 18 Jun 2020, 07:03 by Church Office   [ updated 18 Jun 2020, 07:03 ]

The 22nd of June is a nationally marked celebration of all the contributions made by the Windrush Generation and their descendants.

Those arriving in the UK between 1948 and 1971 from Caribbean countries are known as the Windrush generation, they made a massive contribution towards rebuilding Britain after the Second World War.

At 10:27am on Monday 22 June we’re calling on YOU to join together as one to celebrate the Windrush Generation with a special version of a universally loved song in their honour. The song will be “You can get it if you really want” by Desmond Dekker and in the same style as Clap for carers we ask you to come to your front door and sing your hearts out.

The time of 10:27am represents the arrival of 1,027 people on the original Empire Windrush.
