Hello SMS visitor

Our next podcast session — Did you come to this country on a boat?

Tuesday 14 August, 2 to 4 pm, St Mary’s Secret Garden

Did you come on a boat (any boat)? What can you remember about the journey? We have heard some great stories about the actual ocean journey from the Caribbean, and the ports you might have visited on the way. Tell us what happened on the boat, what you did, where the boat went, about friendships formed, lives changed — whatever has stuck in your mind.

We are inviting people who can remember that trip to share their story. The presenter will be Newton Dunbar.

Although the garden is large, seating for the podcast session is limited and we have space only for people with boat stories — but if you come with a boat story, we will find a place for you.
