I started work in Cromwell Road, Millfield, as part of Peterborough Present’s Heritage Lottery project this week. Using old photos of the street as a starting point for conversations with 3 generations of one family, the Kursheeds, I am considering how the area makes them and they make it. Even at first meeting they are frustrated by negative perceptions of their community and area and the effect this has on all of them and their neighbours. They are determined to tell another story, one that places respect, family and reciprocity at its heart. I look forward to where this take us.
