    Merton is to host events to honour the outstanding contribution made by the Caribbean community to the borough and the UK as a whole, from Friday 21 June until Sunday 23 June.

    Pandemonium, a steel band of talented Stanford Primary School children are to perform outside the Civic Centre as part of the Schools Celebration on Friday 21 June from 10am until noon. Other attractions for the morning include a performance of Farewell Calypso sung by school children, Caribbean storytelling sessions and a display of winning entries from a poster competition.
    Caribbean food tasting is to be held as part of the Windrush Day Community Celebration, at Morden Library on Saturday 22 June from 12.30pm until 4.40pm. Highlights of the afternoon are set to include performances from community steel band Panash outside the civic centre. There will be an interactive workshop tracing British/Caribbean historical links and the chance to hear about people’s migration experiences.
