Tracy in is and is a youth worker and barmaid.

Tracy is a barmaid in Sipson, a village under the shadow of Heathrow airport. If aΒ third runway goes ahead there, she stands to lose her house, work and her children’s school. This is why she has campaigned for Grow Heathrow, a community project squatting legally where the runway may be built. She herself is a positive burst of energy in a part of London where the future of things are anything but certain.
