The Barrio Fiesta 2009 was yet another fantastic event and a great success for the organisers and the Philippine Centre.

The unsettled weather and occasional showers did nothing to dampen the spirits of the estimated 50,000 crowd.

Students of Majestic College, which along with Bison UK and Immigration Matters supported the event, turned up in their hundreds. Most of the first time visitors to the 25 year old event, the biggest of its kind outside the Philippines, were amazed at the sheer scale of the fiesta.

As far as I could see and from what was reported by Police Officers on the ground, there was no trouble, no muggings and no violence at the good natured celebration of Filipino culture.

Many of the enquiries received by immigration advisers Bison UK at their stall concerned the Borders Immigration and Citizenship Bill, which could become law next week.

Other concerns included student visas and the Tier 4 changes and obtaining indefinite leave to remain for work permit holding senior carers. Bison UK has successfully extended a large number of Senior Carer work permits and helped qualifying migrants obtain ILR and British Citizenship.
