Caribbean Social Forum
Caribbean Social Forum 2016
The Forum held their annual summer party at the Garrison Church on the afternoon of Saturday August 27th. We were delighted to welcome them. Most of the 100 or so attending lived in the area and were first time visitors in the Church.
The Caribbean community certainly know how to thoroughly enjoy themselves. Jerk chicken, salt fish fritters, rice, plantain salads. A very good DJ with a great mix of records, interspersed with a steel band. A table of elderly domino players completely impervious to everything else that was happening! Some young break dancers and gymnasts. But principally families having a happy day together in the sunshine on a late summer afternoon.
Our guests left the church and the kitchen immaculate and kindly donated a microwave oven and 2 trestle tables to the Trust as a thank you for their use of the site. They are keen to come back and I would be delighted if this became an annual fixture.
