"We are delighted to be recipients of a Windrush Grant and look forward to commemorating and celebrating the historic arrival of Empire Windrush for our members and the local community.

This is to commemorate the arrival of the Empire Windrush in June 1948. Caribbean people arrived on the Empire Windrush in answer to the call from Britain, the Mother Country to help rebuild post war Britain.

The group will be departing at 12pm from their base in the former PASC Centre Liberty Shopping Centre, Stewards Walk, Romford.
