I'm now 46 yrs young, iv lived in Nelson sq for most of my life, best place to grow up imo from Vaughn house to Rowland hill house I enjoyed growing up in a friendly and diverse community, how times have changed, there's no sense of community, just people going about their own business, I wish I was young again

Shame isn't it?

Right to buy didn't help, you now have people paying 3-400 per week rent living next door to people paying 150 or on benefits. They are almost never families so there's hardly any children around and they are the lynch pin of any community.
