Harlow is 75: Paralympian Anne Wafula-Strike: A Lioness we are all so proud of
Harlow is 75: A Celebration of Global Harlow / Fri 30th Sep 2022 am30 07:51am
YH has known Anne Wafula-Strike for a number of years. We have always admired her ambition, her sense of pride, her desire to make the world a better place.
We are using the term “role model” a lot in our project and with Anne, it is richly deserved.
But we went down to the track at Mark Hall to find out more about her early days in Kenya and how those early days formed her formidable personality
To mark the town’s 75th anniversary, 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”.
