Commuting

We spent this evening at Broxbourne Station stopping commuters to ask them about communities and commuting. Its an odd thing to stand outside the station for 2 hours during the evening rush; there are long periods of almost complete stillness intterupted by very sudden gushes of people pouring out of the station so fast that you only need blink and they’d be gone. So we had to work fast to stop a few and persuade them to speak to us after their long days work. Many people told us they had a strong sense of community and links to their community despite working away from the area; people valued the fresh air and someone explained that Broxbourne feels like the beginning of the countryside, like the beginning of what is outside London.
