Steve, your guess is as good as mine.

I suppose they just want to pussyfoot about.....instead of taking firm and decisive action.

What do you mean?

Who took the decision?

Not R2-D2, because they were too high for him to sit on, on his recent all expenses paid visit to the Market Hall?

Re: HBC have taken away the benches from outside the market

Surly the town is covered by a PCSO. They are in every area of the borough, as far as I am aware.(Correct me if I am wrong).

As has been stated on here and in the press, the "Unlawful Alcohol Law" is in place.

The powers of the PCSO, should be used here. Rather than them walking the streets, getting verbal off the feral youth and turning a blind eye to the serious crime(because they have not had the training, why are they on the streets).

Where as they can remove alcohol, and dispose of it.(Maybe rent a skip and put it next to the Town Hall), so the apprentices don't have far to walk to dispose of the cans and bottles.Might have to go to daily collection, let alone weekly.

Open up the Council Chambers in the Town Hall to them, since they're used so infrequently.

Out of their minds.

Talking crap.

Home from home.

PCSO's, they're about as much use as a Catholic priests plums ! Yes they have limited power & removing alcohol is one of them, no one takes them seriously (well definitely not the scumbags they have to deal with at least) & they're not even stop gap Coppers. The money wasted employing these people would be better spent on proper Plods, with a uniform & a big stick who can actually see the legal process through.

Re: HBC have taken away the benches from outside the market

Seriously, the Maundy Grange Empire is killing the town.(My thoughts for his place though need to be saved for another thread and day).

All said, the plod need to enforce the laws, move them on and take away their ale.(Tell them Maundy have set up an off-licence, down Warmden Brook)

To the best of my knowledge it wasn't an Hyndburn Councillor, which makes it even more ludicrous that the quote attributed to or made by Clare in the LT is misleading

They've been gathering in the seating area at Avenue Parade/Eastgate of late it would seem. At least it's closer for Dorothy to trot along and chat to them....

Re: HBC have taken away the benches from outside the market

To be honest over the years i've only ever seen drunkards & dossers sat on those seats anyway!...OK, of late they have been younger & more vocal & aggressive which has probably brought this to peoples attention more, but they've never been relaxing places to while away a half hour or so have they?...Dont think the benches will be missed really! As mentioned, as least these scumbags may end up nearer to "Maundy Mile" now!!

Best Regards - Taggy

Don't be too harsh.

Because of the softly, softly approach taken by Maundy Grange,...

'Now do remember, that money's for electricity, to keep your sick granny warm, and not for those dirty drugs.'

...Accrington is able to support twelve villages in the opium producing areas of Afghanistan.

The point is they should be relaxing places to sit down.

There's been talk of regenerating the area to bring it back to it's "former glory", but we should have nowhere to sit and enjoy the this view?
