Chhuar Singh, arrived in Coventry in 1956. PDF Print E-mail

 “In 1956, on Christmas Day, I came over to England. My first experience of being in England was that there was about two foot snow around Heathrow airport. Well being a child at that time you see, I had very little vision of England, how it would be. Well it was completely different from the village life I had been living in India.

When I came here, rather then having mud huts like back in the Punjab there was more or less all brick buildings. Obviously, that’s something to do with the weather; here the weather is much different so the buildings had to be completely different. I can still remember, it wasn’t like the roads and houses we have now. At that time, there were smaller houses, didn’t even have bathrooms in them.”
