Windrush Grip and Passport!
It was a wonderful evening of celebrations, rounded off when Pops proudly brought out his ‘Gip’ and original passport that he arrived in the UK with, and started to tell us his stories about his arrival in the UK. Everyone was queuing up to hold his ‘grip’. It brought back so many memories.
