What on earth is going on with the large number of drunks/meth heads that seem to favour congregating in the John Harvard Library
, and local parks?
Myself and other local parents have had numerous run ins with these people, and it is becoming more and more of a problem it seems.
They are often found congregating in Little Dorrit
or Long Lane
park, sitting on the edge of the children's play areas, either sobering up or drinking. the kids fidn this quite intimidating, and it obviously sets aprents a little on edge. And more and more so they seem to group together in the Johh Harvard Library, spreading themselves out amongst the tables, or sleeping in the chairs by the window.
There was a worrying incident recently causing great alarm in John Harvard Library
with one in particular acting very strangely around the school children in teh kids area. He was walkign very slowly back and forth, opening one side of his coat. He then tried to enter the children's area but a parent prevented him from doing so and reported him to the Library staff, who simply said they were 'keeping an eye on them'
Can anyone explain to me where they have suddenly all come from? It seems to be a recent problem, with 5 or 6 of them at any one time. They are quite intimidating, always drunk/out of it, and many of them speak no english so trying to communciate with them is tricky!
