The sun reveals a few things about our community as it sets on Greenford Broadway. The small shiny patches on the pavement are pieces of discarded gum, buffed to a sheen by pedestrians and the elements (we chew a lot of gum in Greenford). The dog waiting for its owner at the shop door has clearly just had puppies (we breed a lot of dogs in Greenford). The dogs are often discarded with as little care as the gum.
