Windrush memorial ‘an important moment in our history’, says MST Chair

Mary Seacole Trust Chair, Trevor Sterling, has welcomed the unveiling of the Windrush memorial in London yesterday (22 June).

“The unveiling of the Windrush memorial at Waterloo station in London marks an important moment in British history as we recognise the contribution that generations of people from the Caribbean have made, and continue to make, to British Society.

“It rightly reminds us of the Windrush scandal, which as the Duke of Cambridge said yesterday, reverberates throughout the Caribbean community in the UK and among nations of the Caribbean. 

“Mary Seacole’s statue is sited a short walk away at St Thomas’ Hospital and we are delighted to welcome our new neighbour, another celebration of Britain’s diversity and an indicator of the kind of society that we strive to be.”
