Positive action, making a difference

Harlow, which celebrated its 70th year as a new town in 2017, has many things to be proud of. From its wonderful green spaces, designed into the very fabric of the town as part of its Master Plan by Sir Frederick Gibberd, its legacy of wonderful public art, including over 90 sculptures by the likes of Henry Moore, Rodin, Barbara Hepworth, and John Mills across the town, through to its current vibrant arts scene. Most of all though, it can be rightly proud of its communities and its people. Organisations such as Faith Groups, Charitable organisations, youth groups, schools and residents associations, as well as groups of friends and individuals contribute enormously to community life in Harlow.

This website is in part designed to celebrate Harlow’s many great things, places, organisations and people, but most of all it is hoped that this will be a hub to galvanise positive action, to make a difference to Harlow.
