Food, it’s always food. That grilled meat, Suya especially, like it’s basically barbecue food on the roadside all the time. Scotch Bonnets, I remember just that kind of burning smell you get in your nose when you smell something really spicy and that cough is coming, but you know it’s going to taste so good.

I feel like the worst of it has happened when displacements have happened and people have been moved out now… those are the moments where community can very much lose itself and people can feel a bit defeated and not; feel like they don’t actually have the power. That’s something in Barking when such big changes are happening.
