Accrington is 8th

Community website ILiveHere asked the public for its votes in a tongue-in-cheek poll about the 'chavviest, most violent and unclean' places to live..
https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-new...-live-13695834

Just over 36,000 residents and we made the top ten..

Re: Accrington is 8th

everyone likes to knock the place where they live. try a day out in castleford, bradford or oldham but do not put more than 1 hour on your car for parking.

All of those northern industrial towns have suffered over many years due to lacklustre councils and poor investment....the influx of migrants must also have a part to play.
Not all incomers enrich the area.

Given the planned cuts in the numbers of Police our wonderful CC is making, there's time yet Cashman.

The most upbeat people in Accrington are retailers selling caps, scarves, hoodies, hardware, and wool gloves. Oh, and lawyers of course.

Now, now. Just because you don’t live in London, don’t work for the BBC, and can’t afford to employ them on zero hours contracts as cleaners, nannies...��

Re: Accrington is 8th

No, my life has not been enriched in anyway.
The area where my mum used to live was taken over by incomers and it has become a place to avoid.
There is blatant drug dealing in broad daylight and the young men from this community intimidated my mum for the last three years of her life....using the back of her garage to deal and take drugs, climbing over her backyard wall and using her toilet....festooning her yard with spare toilet rolls.
I would have involved the police, but my Mum was scared they would put a brick through her window....this was a direct threat made to her when she politely asked them to move away from her back gate.
So No....they have created problems rather than enrichment.

Cashy, I went in the community Beat office without letting Ma know.
They were not interested.
Firstly, they would not act because Ma would not make a complaint....and secondly they wanted notifying when the trespassing was happening.
The incidents always happened after the beat office was closed....and you know how the situation with the police is(especially as these are ethnic minority youths)
Over the last ten months I have visited on alternate days.
There have been three incidents of trespass(captured on CCTV....although the images are such that it is unlikely that they would be identified....hoodies, scarves across the faces).
Anyway, from Monday, the place will no longer be my responsibilty...the house sold today.
Halle-blooming-lujah.

Re: Accrington is 8th

Accrington was more of a dump back in the 70's (for example the smell of the river in the town center) - last time I was there I thought they'd made progress in improving it to what it was - but perhaps that isn't enough? Or it's worse if you live there. I wouldn't have liked to have lived around the Fern Gore area or in the lower regions around Platts back in the day or around Blackburn Road.

you must be having a laugh cashy. just a waste of time and increased blood pressure when they give all the excuses for not attending. its not an accrington problem but a nationwide problem unless you live in a million pound plus mansion.
