  • Jemma Mindham, Chief Executive Officer of Rainbow Services, who spoke about the award-winning work the charity does not just within Harlow but across West Essex, with a focus on their Community Builder initiative.
  • Sandra Wright and Dr William Lawton, General Manager and Academic Director of the Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) who, after a brief history of the University in Harlow and a summary of their 50 year celebrations, went on to describe how MUN plans to get more involved with the local community and organisations within the town.

Closing the meeting, John Keddie said: ‘Thank you to our inspiring speakers who summed up what makes Harlow stand out from the crowd’.
