Harlow is 75: From Northern Ireland to Harlow: At the heart of the community
Harlow is 75: A Celebration of Global Harlow / Mon 29th Aug 2022 am31 08:31am
KAY Morrison is a newly elected councillor for the ward of Bush Fair.
However, Kay has a long history of political representation especially in Scotland where she was so highly regarded she was appointed Deputy Provost of Fife. That may well mean she knows how to pronounce Anstruther and Buckhaven properly.
But that sense of community began in her home nation of Northern Ireland.
YH sat down with Kay at Netteswell Pond to talk about those early years and beyond.
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”.
