Annual review number nine! Can’t say I’m a novice at this anymore. I can already imagine next year’s review. We’ll be throwing a party. Cakes and balloons. Lots and lots of balloons. And cakes. I like cakes. Especially fresh cream. With a jam filling… But then the balloons burst, and I wake up. The calendar […]

From Sylhet To Cambridge: Reflecting On 60 Years Of Family History And Heritage

Posted Posted in Cambridge, Community, Education, History, Media, News

During my school days, history was something that hardly filled me with excitement. Even watching Doctor Who episodes set in the past required serious effort to motivate and inspire me, but credit where it‚Äôs due, on most occasions they succeeded.
