One of the Neighbourhood Plan’s cross cutting themes is ‘diverse and inclusive’ but we’re hardly diverse in a visual sense. But if you look a little more closely there’s plenty of people here who bring difference.
As a proxy measure for difference this post looks at ‘native’ language by which I mean what language did you speak at home when you’re growing up.
I’ve very quickly compiled this list of 10 from the people I know. I could easily get it up to 15 plus with a little more consideration. We’ve actually got 5 in Pease Way. I’m sure there are streets in Histon & Impington that would score 10 themselves.
So here’s the fairly simple challenge: how many ‘native’ languages are there in Histon & Impington. The qualifying rules are that you must know the person (it might be you!) and that he or she must live here now. I’m sure we’ll exceed 20 easily but how many more?
