Harlow is 75: Lisa at home in England and in Canada
Harlow is 75: A Celebration of Global Harlow / Sun 7th Aug 2022 am31 11:52am
THIS is our second interview with a Harlow resident who hails from Canada.
Lisa Fish is the deputy headteacher at Pemblerley Academy.
We met her at the Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) annexe in Old Harlow.
Lisa paints a picture on life on the east coast of Canada. Her accent has a trace of Irish/Scots which is also opens up another window into the history of migration into Canada.
To mark the town’s 75thanniversary, Harlow Council and Your Harlow have launched a project which records the diverse history, heritage, and culture of the people and groups which are part of modern-day Harlow.
The Harlow at 75 project is made up of audio-visual recordings of conversations with both individuals and groups that explores their lives abroad before resettling in Harlow. The project reflects that we are a local but global new town and explores themes such as the definition of “Home”.
Thank you to Cristin Casey of MUN for helping us with this interview.
