Nishall Garala BCAc, 22, of Waterhouse Moor, is asking the community of Harlow to get involved with his successful campaign called #BigUpHarlow.
Nishall has served on many local communities’ groups and panels such as Harlow Youth Council, Waterhouse Moor Residents’ Association, he currently volunteers for Harlow Police and was the Student Governor at Harlow College alongside many other roles he held within the town. Nishall was recently honoured the British Citizen Award for his services to the community (BCAc) in July 2017.
Nishall started the #BigUpHarlow campaign on Twitter in 2014, and over the years the campaign has grown at a fast rate with support from many people and organisations, such as Robert Halfon MP, Harlow Chamber of Commerce, Harlow Council and many other dignitaries and community groups within the town.
Nishall is now continuously asking the residents and businesses of Harlow to get involved in the campaign to promote Harlow.
Nishall, who is extremely passionate about the community, said “#BigUpHarlow is growing from strength to strength, and is being recognised as an influential campaign that has proven to tackle the negative perception of Harlow”
He went on to say “There is so much good going on in the town and I think people need to know about it, and the people of Harlow can help to make a difference to get the message out there.”
Now that Nishall’s in his final year at university, studying Business and Management at Royal Holloway, University of London. He said “This campaign means so much to me, and even at university I am always thinking about how to promote Harlow in a positive light. At university, one of my nicknames is ‘Mr #BigUpHarlow’, as I am constantly promoting and talking about Harlow.”
Nishall’s instruction to join the campaign has been described as ‘simple’ by many people.
The instructions are as followed “Find something good to say about Harlow, put the #BigUpHarlow on it and post it on to Twitter or Facebook.” #BigUpHarlow is primarily a Twitter-based campaign, which people can follow @BigUpHarlow, however, all the post from Twitter can be also been seen via the campaign’s Facebook Page.
The campaign is looking for posts regarding positive local news stories and events, what people enjoy about the town, what the hidden features people have discovered, and anything that promotes the greatness of Harlow.
Nishall also added a message for everyone, “Harlow needs your help, #BigUpHarlow today and promote our town’s goodness.”
