The Windrush Decision

In 1948 the Empire Windrush docked in Tilbury carrying over 1000 passengers from the Caribbean to a new life in the UK

As part of a National Lottery Heritage fund project, local Nottingham charity Always Community interviewed over 50 members of the Windrush generation. This exciting project asked a simple question – why did the interviewee make their Windrush Decision?

We are pleased to bring you two of these amazing interviews as Pastor Weaver and Rosetta Burrel share their personal stories with us.
