More than 300 people attended a day of activities, performances and celebration of the Windrush generation in Slough.

The day focused around the Caribbean community with the aim to celebrate, commemorate and educate about the contribution of the Windrush generation has made to Slough and the UK.

The event was organised in partnership with Christina Brooks-Abraham, Slough Borough Council and several of Slough’s Caribbean community organisations Anguilla Community Group, AXA UK, Slough Dominican Association, and SANAS (St Kitts and Nevis Association Slough).

Revellers enjoyed a Zumba-thon, live performances and plenty of Caribbean food and drink.

Event organiser Ms Brooks-Abraham said: “Despite no central government funding the event was a huge success and a positive expression of Caribbean culture.

“It was fantastic to see the community coming together and other communities be uplifted by experiencing our culture.”

Tan Dhesi, MP for Slough, said: “It is very important that we as a town come together to celebrate the immense contribution of the Windrush Generation for the development and prosperity of Slough and the country.

“While we continue to celebrate we must also fight the injustices of the Windrush scandal, whereby hard working people of Caribbean heritage and their descendants are now being devalued. I will continue with other like minded MPs to raise this in Parliament.

“Well done to the Caribbean community organisations and Slough Borough Council for organising a wonderful event.”
