Windrush Day celebration webinar

24 May 2023

Windrush Day is an important day for our local community, marking the date when the Empire Windrush arrived at Tilbury Docks in 1948, bringing over a thousand passengers on board from the Caribbean.

Celebrated annually on 22 June, this year marks 75th anniversary of the Windrush and offers an opportunity to come together to deepen our understanding and celebrate this shared history.

Join us on Wednesday, 21 June from 1pm to 2pm to learn more about Windrush and celebrate the Windrush Generation’s many contributions to local and British society, culture and economy.

We will be joined by Kenton Black from Derby West Indian Community Association and Ludwig Ramsey from Chesterfield African Caribbean Community Association, who will share a local perspective including their community projects and initiatives.

The session is open to all employees, managers, elected members and community representatives.
