Friends of Woodberry Down, A Special Collection of Poetry, Life Stories and Art, Thursday 24 June 2021

Community Club, Friends of Woodberry Down have just launched their Windrush booklet - A Special Collection of Poetry, Life Stories and Art. 

Part-funded by Hackney Council’s Windrush Microgrant Scheme, the booklet aims to celebrate the Windrush generation and also raise awareness, using poetry, life stories and art.

An intergenerational project, the booklet also features writing and artwork, from young descendants of the Windrush Generation.

`What Windrush Means to Me` is the booklet theme. Members of the 50+ community group shared their Windrush experiences.  The many accounts of the brave men and women (you are about to read), who came to help restore Britain in the 1950's and 1960's are extremely humbling, and deserve our utmost respect.

RSVP for the official booklet launch event Thursday 24th June 2021, 6pm - 7pm. Everyone is welcome. Details below
