Referring to previous thread, New Menace of Lewes, about NovaChav, how bad a problem is itreally? I'm thinking of moving to that part of town from another part of Lewes - is this an ocasional problem or a constant problem? Noisy, or will I not notice?
I know how annoying these thoughtless little b*stards can be, just wanted to get a sense of the impact on Nevillians, especially as I am thinking of moving close to the green so my toddlers can play in the park.

Hi BH it's one house on the corner with christmas lights up still they seem to have a large collection of people who want to work on cars they are said to be bad mouthed etc
I have Never seen this side of them I have driven passed and get all kinds of looks which make me feel uneasy.
but the general problem is the way they drive round the estate especially this Nova and a blue saxo.
the fact is it's a park and kids this time of year want to sneak out some beer and get drunk I think we all did that
at some time in our lives but the language seems to be worse this day and age.
but I dont think all the bad stuff on the green is down to the house and cars it attracts.

It is all of the above but some of them are quite agressive to mothers with small kids. A few of my friends have been complaining that they are doing things deliberatly to frighten young children. Like jumping at them and saying Boo really loudly. To you and me it may not seem so bad, but to a four year old it is quite frightening when a man, they dont know, jumps at you like that then walks off laughing. Its at the point that they now walk other ways to avoid passing the 'youths' Its your choice to move but the best thing is to wander round there at different times. Every one has different opinions on these lads, some say they are not doing to much harm, others disagree, it all depends whether they have picked on you yet!!!! My opinion?? They are a bunch of little pricks whose parents havent taught them respect or responsibility, and they are a waste of space. ( I have now stepped down from my soapbox!!)

Afaik, it's not a problem at the top end of Neville. It's shame really, there are some vile kids that play in the street outside our house until gone 9 at night, we could do with them getting terrorised by traffic. Maybe they'd b***** off and play in their own gardens then.

I don't live there but had to drive past them one evening after a kids party and my 5 and 7 year olds got the one finger wave as we slowed for the junction. Lovely people, very mature!

Super K is right as loads of teans go through this bored stage, they move on as they mature & the next group of kids spring up & become a pain. If your lucky you may go a few years between but stay in one area long enough & you'll see kids come & go no matter where you live in Lewes or anywhere I guess.

Despite what these kids think and what some of you may believe we are doing something we do read this forum and take note of what you say is going on.

You take note officer but do not take action. What exactly has been done since these epidodes have been reported ?
You have the powers to disperse groups of youths, confiscate alcohol if being drunk in public places and issue on the spot fines for general dropping litter and antisocial behaviour. I'm sure you have powers to do something about their driving too.
So PC Plod....about time the listening police turned into the action police

Are we to believe this post is from the police? Surely a police officer, with a minimum qualification of 5 GCSEs, would have puntuated his writing a little better?
Or am I just naive?

All I wanted to say was please have some faith in the Police.
Pick holes in my punctuation all you like I'm very tired it's been a long day.
It's now time for bed.

So that's where you were going when the police car drove by the usual suspects parked on the double yellows outside No 1 Nevill Crescent, enjoy your early night, we had to leave the park so the children wouldn't have to listen to the foul language Thanks

Ugh, you give TP an inch and he takes a mile with eugenics and other wackadoodle stuff. I do sense though that the power is... more
