Topic (History)

Going to Britain

Last week you created a propaganda poster to encourage people to move from the Caribbean to England. For people who had already settled in Britain, one way of supporting each other and building a sense of community was to offer advice to fellow Caribbeans who had yet to make the journey. Going to Britain? (click here to see it) was a pamphlet offering advice to new arrivals about how to settle into life in Britain, from what to bring with you and how to prepare for the cold, to how to find work and the importance of tea breaks!

Read the extract below:

It is wise for you to remember that England is a cold country, that it is way up north, and that it has customs and traditions different from those of the West Indies.

I said that England is a cold place – so it is, colder than anything you have ever felt. In winter all the water outside freezes, that is, it turns into ice, everybody shivering though protected with warm sweaters, leather gloves, woollen coats, and thick-soled shoes. Are you prepared for this type of cold climate with its icy winds, its sleet and snow? (Going to Britain?, p. 10)

Over to you

If you were giving advice to someone coming to join you to live in Britain, what would you tell them about? Think of at least three key pieces of advice or information, then create your own leaflet.
