Wimbledon greyhound stadium held it’s last race meeting on the 4th June.
AFC Wimbledon get a new stadium in it’s place, which is great news with them coming back to their home in Plough Lane.
It was the last track to have greyhound racing in London. Whatever your feelings it’s sad to witness the demise of a sport and inevitably the dogs.
I couldn’t go to the final race meeting, but I did ask the writer Alyson Rudd to watch my original film and write a poem.
I’ve cut a new version with some shots that I hadn’t used in the version I made in 2013. Alyson’s beautiful poem is read by the actor Paul Gilmore.
