Notes: A personal migrant memoir from 1964

My personal migration story. In 1964, when I was nine-years-old, I migrated from England to New Zealand with my parents (who were ten pound Poms) and my eight-year-old brother. My dad recorded, on Cine 8 film, the whole trip from leaving our home town in Yorkshire by train, to sailing from Southhampton to Wellington via the Panama Canal. Mum wrote about the voyage and settling into a new country. She sent it to the local paper back in England, who printed it over two editions. I have photocopies of the articles. Dad edited the Cine film and set it to music, whilst Mum did the narration. It took them hours. I have it on DVD now.  They moved back to England decades ago and now live in Harrogate. Both are now 90.

 Do come along and join us for the last meeting of the year. Bring a plate to celebrate with friends the upcoming festive season.
