We also have a computer scientist, a planning engineer and a team leader for a very large but ethical company. So there is a great mix of different personalities for stimulating conversation. They are all good working people looking for the right person to join them as a property guardian.

Interesting facts about Greenford:
- Greenford is considered to be birthplace of the modern organic chemical industry. It was in William Perkin's chemical factory in North Greenford, by the Grand Union Canal, that the world's first aniline dye was discovered in March 1856. Perkin called his amazing discovery 'mauveine'. Today there is a blue plaque marking the spot in Oldfield Lane North, just south of the Black Horse Public House. The former Rockware glassworks on the canal is commemorated by Rockware Avenue.

There are local schools and churches for all major denominations and extensive shopping facilities where both modern and traditional tastes are all catered for. There is a strong community feel in Greenford as it meets the needs of a diverse population and still manages to keep the village feel.
