Podsmead’s 2019 fun day will take place on the Scott Avenue Green on Saturday 22nd June. There will be lots going on all around the theme of Windrush to celebrate 71 years since the ship landed in Britain. There will be an information tent highlighting some of the stories of those first immigrants and the journey they made, spoken word performances, arts and music all celebrating the ship and the people that made the long journey to start a new life in Britain, bringing their Caribbean culture, traditions, music and foods with them to enrich our communities. The high point of the day will be the grand unveiling of a wooden Windrush ship outside the Melting Pot café which will provide seating for children.
The event will bring together people of all ages and backgrounds to celebrate living in the local area. It’s a chance for neighbours to spend time with each other socially and to develop positive relationships. Local business will also be supporting the event.
