Ross Nunn posted the following in the previous thread:

"Provide me with examples where people have politely pointed out the errors? All we ever get on here is s**t! Have you not been reading the previous posts - we have said that we know that sometimes our behavious can be less than perfect, and we havn't said once we dont care either.

Tell you what Madge, you have voiced your concern thats as far as it goes. Call us kids, pathetic, idiots whatever you like. I'm not saying you should thank us, but realise that it could be far worse than litter and swearing!!!"

It isn't really as far as it goes though, is it? Clearly a lot of people find the mere presence and behaviour of Ross and his friends intimidating and thoroughly anti-social. Surely it's irrelevant if they're tax payers or adults or anything else? What matters is that most people think that chucking litter on the ground, parking selfishly and swearing loudly is unacceptable, doesn't it?

It could indeed be a lot worse than litter and swearing, but that's not really the point is it? Ross, your neighbours don't like the way you behave: they'd like you not to swear in front of their kids and not to toss litter and fag ends on the ground. Why do you insist that you should continue to behave anti-socially, and why should we celebrate the fact that it isn't any worse? I am very politely pointing out your error, which is that your community does not welcome your behaviour. It's not the first time you've had a starring role on this forum either, is it? So why not stop? Go somewhere else where you're not annoying or intimidating people?

Is this deemed anti-social behaviour and has it been reported to the police?

i think this is all a bit funny really if u all have such a problem with us being up the park why dont you come and tell us to our face instead of posting it on here! and as for the mondeo being parked on the grass if a certain couple of people didnt park like idiots then it could be parked on the road. people have reported us to the police but they cant do anything as we are not doing anything wrong.

â?¢other behaviour that causes harrassment, alarm or distress
If yes, the police can do something.

It just sounds like that Nevill has a bunch of curtain twitchers constantly noting down every little indiscretion they find unsatisfactory. So someone parks on the grass...it's honestly not the end of the world. So they swear loudly...if it bothers you, mention it. It's not their fault if you find them intimidating and have to vent on some tiny portion of the Internet to get some sort of release. From what Ross etc have written here they do not exactly come across as hooligans, or whatever other frankly passé term you would like to apply to them. The fact that they are bothered enough to reply to all this palava shows a certain level of social awareness anyway. Labelling people as chavs, bringing up ASBOs and suchlike is just narrow minded.
Nothing they are doing is criminal. There are dispersal orders in town for areas like near the Pells where residents have an actual problem with what goes on near their residences. However I think if you try and bother police with this kind of stuff it would be more akin to wasting police time than anything else!
To be fair, if all parties acted a bit more like adults, maybe this kind of stuff could be mooted before it became an issue.

Thank you Nevill idiot!! Can I congratulate you on your choice of nickname?

I don't think it really matters whether you're "doing anything wrong" as far as the police are concerned: I'm just interested in why you persist in doing it when you quite clearly are upsetting everyone around you. It's not just a few people either - lots of people would like you to go somewhere else. And why on earth should the police waste their time trying to get you to behave like responsible adults when you know perfectly well what the problem is?

I wouldn't want to confront you (which is certainly what "telling you to your faces" would amount to). Why don't you just stop or go somewhere else? I really don't understand. Nevill Idiot is obviously exactly right.

Pet hate: parking on the grass or pavement and not the road. If there is no room on the road park where there is room, not on the grass , pavement its really ugly and rude and lazy. I dont think it makes you a bad person by the way. Here is my list of best to worse in lewes for living based on no more than my own unqualified opinion.
1 anywhere in or around bradford road , lovely area.
2 malling best for proximity and cheaper housing
3 landport good housing stock and no in-fighting like nevill
4 nevill, good housing stock and easy access to downs
5 cliffe, hotbed of religious free church luthern pyromaniacs!! ( relax its just a joke but true)
6 those houses opposite the prison
I thank you.
I appreciate the lack of relevance to the thread.

That's all as may be, Mr b and all the rest of you. I can't really see that what goes on of an evening outside Lincolns is relevant any more than observing that it's worse in Damascus. The point is that a lot of people really don't like you hanging around there and find you intimidating. There's not much point in insisting that you're not a threat if people feel otherwise, is there? I wouldn't want to upset everyone in my community, so I'm intrigued as to why you're happy to do it anyway. As I asked before, why don't you just go somewhere else where you won't cause a nuisance?

I know the circumstances of at least 2 of these people and they definitely don't have jobs.
Some of the people who live nearby find it intimidating to have to walk through a crowd of scruffy, foul-mouthed young men hanging around on the pavement every time they go to the bus stop. Some object to the litter left behind, some simply think it lowers the tone of what is actually quite a nice area.
I think they have a valid point. Why should people have to put up with an impromptu motor repair shop outside their homes all day long?

Working on the public highway is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE unless employed by AA, RAC or ESCC Highways.
When I have visited the Nevill, the chavs working on their "mota's" cause obstruction and are offensive - they certainly degrade the area.
I've witnessed these chavs driving like idiots around the town, demonstrating their complete disregard for the highway code and the general public.
How on earth did these morons pass their driving tests?

Someone from winterbourne ? It's just all part of a big package of petty stuff , clean your act up lads and every thing would be sweet

The problem is everywhere not just here,half of you don't even live up nevill

Town centre resident - first of all define chav? We will work on our cars wherever we see fit. We dont block the road traffic still flows and the pavement we move out of the way for pedestrians. Plus we couldn't care less if you like the look of our cars or not you dont have to drive them do you?!! Senario for you - your driving along the road, you have a blow out, and there is nobody to help you straight away, you decide to change the wheel your self. Is that an offence is it??? Oh and your a moron too!
Rose Tinted - not going to pin that one on anyone - own fault - car had no tax, got clamped, paid, then taken off, end of story.
Annette Curtin-Twitcher - we do all have jobs actually, apart from one who is at college! Not that it's any of your business - unlucky! And its not a motor repair shop - just decent blokes working on a car - doubt you'd moan if someone was out in their fron garden building furniture or sculpting!!
Nev Vile - its ok and legal to park a car on access protection marking accross the drive! So yeah we will do that whenever we like 24/7 its not causing an obstruction - ive seen 15ton lorries drives past us with 3 or 4 cars there. Oh and plus none of us are teenageor chavs! Oh and the second part of your alias suits you!!
Old Bag - we'll tidy up after visits - and try watch our language around the park when kids present.
Cathcart - Thank you

We ARE speaking to you about it, mr b and mondeo man. I don't know how many times you need to hear from your neighbours that they find you intimidating. That's why they're not addressing you direct but via this forum. The only excuse you've offered so far is that things are worse elsewhere which as has been said numerous times before is totally irrelevant.

Sorry: got interrupted and posted after Ross had replied.

Thank you for that, really. I think this has been a useful discussion: a bit of give and take on the part of you guys and the neighbours is what's needed, maybe?

Ross my name is actually a piss take on you lot , didn't spot it did you ! I was going to mention the yellow mini I saw it today and not a car on the road , maybe he thinks if you can do it so can he , see what you have started , and now you have moaned on here about it lol! Yes I understand you can park on that white line , but that's not what it was intended for was it ! ( that's not a question by the way ) lets face it you are doing unpopular things and it upsets people , you could change your attitude , and it was nice to see you taking your kids there today , teaching the next generation , NICE ONE !

There's a world of difference between someone occasionally fixing a car, or anything else for that matter, in their front garden or even in the road. That is prefectly acceptable. Routinely parking outside other people's houses and working on cars on a regular basis is a completely different matter.
Many of those who congregate outside the corner house aren't even Nevill residents. I'm told that 2 of the regular crowd live on Landport and another on Ousedale. What's wrong with working on cars outside their own houses?
While it may well be legal to park on the access markings, provding you have the consent of the person whose access you are obstructing, the white line is only about one car length long, and but RN has said that there are sometimes 3 or 4 cars there (not that we needed to be told). At least 2 or 3 of them must therefore be on the double yellow lines.

"We will work on our cars wherever we see fit." Well, that sums it up, really doesn't it? "We'll do what we want and don't give a toss about anyone who doesn't like it" is pretty much what that adds up to.
And if you guys really find it necessary to make the corner of the green look like a breaker's yard, can you at least stop gobbing while you're at it? That really is disgusting.

This is all very interesting, I for one do not find teenage/early twenty year olds intimidating but then in this trade I see them as they really are, I have seen them Drunk, Angry,Tired, Upset,Crying, Sulking and all those other emotions that humans suffer and most of all very Polite and Understanding.
Being trapped in a car with people who`s emotions have gone astray would scare most people,But I have found that all you have to do in 99% of cases is listen.
Now what I have heard from these lads is Please talk to us,Don`t be worried, and we will try to clean up our act .
Yes, there is the retaliation to the nasty comments, The we will do what we want stuff, But I`m seeing you older adults having a chance to bond with your neighbours and to sort out your your problems.
Why has not someone suggested that while they work on a problem with a car the others park in the legal parking spots nearby out of the way.
Ask them to keep the noise down, ask them to clean up behind themselves.
Its all about attitude, Have the right one and you will go far and be remembered as a nice person.
BTW Being a taxi driver, I get all the woes of people but the three times Lewes people have scared me was a middle class lady from Nevil who was, Quote` Make sure I would not have anymore children` because she did not like the fare. A Houndean Rise lady who,Quote` Hope my children were born crippled`same reason, and a Man from Malling `who was not paying and I was going to die if I called the police. All of these were well over forty...
I think you have a problem that is small here really, so go out and chat with the guys, and have fun.
Ps I do not know any of them but know of them .

Look lads I would hope that your parents, grandparents and other family members did not swear around you as children and if they are aware of all this controversy surely will not be pleased that you are being thoughtless around other peoples young children. You are adults who should not need reminding how to conduct yourself in public, its only basic manners that everyone in your community is asking of you. If people were disrepecful in front of your children or loved ones you would be equally annoyed as others on here. You may well be ok people but we are all judged by what we do and how we conduct ourselves in public and you lads are no different. Please dont keep asking folk to approach you (there really is no need) others in your community are ok people too but they are not expecting you to find that out. It all gets a bit emboiled & peope are not meaning to be unreasonable, they are upset & simply trying to let you now how they feel in the hope you may address your actions. Lets hope this is the end of it all & things will improve from hereon in.
