Dreading the summer holidays

Wirral Globe: Dreading the summer holidays Dreading the summer holidays

I AM dreading the summer holidays as I am just getting a taste of what’s ahead with the current school half-term breaks.

I live in between two parks and a large pitch of grass that are all within walking distance from my home – yet the neighbours' children insist on playing football in my concrete driveway and on the street.

I wouldn't mind, but this goes on for hours and the constant thud of the football becomes unbearable.

I cannot open my windows during the nice weather due to the noise.

I am sure their parents would be the first to complain if there were no parks or playing fields in the area.

Please give a thought for your neighbours and have your children use the facilities the council have provided.

Why miserable Cheesy ? why should peoples lives be ruined because of a thoughtless few, when we were kids our parents told us not to annoy the neighbours, this is called courtesy, to allow your kids to kick footballs in the street is to encourage anti social behaviour, damage to windows and parked cars, the sad part of all this is that it destroys community spirit and causes fall outs between neighbours with many elderly people prisoners in their homes, but that's okay as long as little Wayne can practice his footy, because he's entitled, its his human rights!

Remember the good old days, when there was an effective Wirral council with a good neighbour nuisance team.... oh.. no I don't either.

You can certainly guarantee that "cheesy peasy" is a parent of children who wouldn't think twice about causing a headache for neghbours. As the letter writter pointed out "you" "they" would be the first moaning if there were no parks or fields for them to play in so try not to be so selfish in your own little world!

This person writes the same letter every year. Some people were born old.

Some parents like to know where their kids are and won't let them out of their sight, hence allowing them to play nearby. I have no doubt that the person who wrote this letter would be the first to blame those parents for neglect if they allowed their kids to play elsewhere and something awful happened to them.

So you have to be old to understand the difference between right and wrong?

Anti social behaviour and damaging property belonging to others is wrong!

Using free facilities provided by the council is right!

If some parents wont have their children out of sight then they have a responsibility to take their children to an area that does not cause annoyance to their neighbours.
