History Workshop & Reminiscence Session

Today Historian, Peter Daniel, ran a history workshop for over 50 participants from the Furzedown Project, an older people's group in Tooting. The talk covered migration to Britain from the Roman times but concentrated on the post-war migration up to the 1970s. He looked at the different reasons, different communities had for coming to Britain and both push and pull factors.

This was followed by a reminiscence session with the group who shared their own stories of coming to Britain and how the local area has been affected by migration.
