I've heard it's short for Cheltenham average, and was used by the girls at Cheltenham Ladies' College, but I've no idea if that's true or not.

I thought chav (or chavvie) was originally a south London word for kiddies.

There was a TV show on chavs recently, Julie Birchall hosted it - it was awful - some of it was filmed in Bermondsey though.

I heard "Council House Assault and Violence"... or it could be and old Romany word "chavi", meaning "delinquent youth"...

According to the marvellous Quinion, it's a Romany name for child. http://www.worldwidewords.org/topicalwords/tw-cha2.htm

. Chav
Chav - Sub species of human

Commonly thought to be of inferior intellect, the Chavette surprises us with its cunning plan to avoid taking up a professional career and provide itself with free accommodation supplied by tax payers by spawning multi coloured mini chavs at a early stage in life, usually mid teens.
Clearly recognisable by their distinctive tribal Burberry they congregate in town centres and on street corners, Chavs have a reputation of being creative with public property and motor vehicles, building themselves Chaviots out of mechcano sets and strip lighting, and providing us with humorous banta written on toilet walls like ‘Shit' and ‘Tasha woz ere' in an attempt to relieve our boredom while urinating.
Their language is a basic form of English thus avoiding any words they cannot spell or pronounce, even to the extent of creating new words only they know the meaning of.
Hunting in large groups Chavs will single out the weakest, smallest prey and attack it without mercy avoiding any personal injury and insuring victory.
Chavs unfortunately don't yet fall into the category of rodent and in effect cannot be bludgeoned to death under the guise of pest control. Darn!-
I think I speak for everyone when I say thank you Chavs for the great contribution you've made to this country, you've made it what it what it is today - a **** hole.

SE1 seems to be quite a chav mecca- saw a blinding chav couple arguing in the shop about which lager was on special offer, her with what I believe is often called a Romford Face-Lift (the style where you grease your hair up into a ponytail and secure it so tightly your eyebrows rise a couple of centimetres) and HUGE hoop earrings, him wearing some kind of tracksuit and tattoos....

Well the author of that piece obviously has nothing to worry about - he is clearly not a chav - merely an illiterate, mysogynist crypto-fascist!

I thought it was called an old kent road facelift?

You also get double I-Spy points for white raebok's, purple jogging set and a sovereign ring on each finger.
