The Equality Practice is running a free exhibition called A Town Called Home to celebrate the stories of immigrants who came to Grimsby and North East Lincolnshire from the 1950s and made a better for themselves and their families.
Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the exhibition tells the wonderful stories of immigrants who came to North East Lincolnshire from the 1950s.
They are tales of triumph over adversity, of hope, and the belief that a better future for themselves and their families could be – and has been – found in our community.
They bring many skills, such as welders, engineers, teachers, doctors, business owners, fish factory operatives, carers and more.
They speak of the warmth and good nature of the people of North East Lincolnshire, how beautiful this part of the world is, and how much it has to offer.
The exhibition will run at the Fishing Heritage Centre, Grimsby, from Saturday, February 2, 2019 to Sunday, June 30, 2019.
There will be information boards, photos and artwork, audio stations and films, dress-up for children, stickers, and more.
