Celebrating Windrush in Devon

Windrush denotes the post-war immigration of West Indian people to the UK between 1948 and 1971 from the Caribbean …

They came from countries such as Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and Barbados.

Many of the people who came over to England from the Caribbean during this period came at the invitation of the British Government, as British citizens from British-owned colonies, to help rebuild war-damaged Britain after WWII. They paid their own fares.
