Well, it looks like the police will be keeping an eye on the drop-in centre now.
In response to my query, this is what Keynsham Inspector Tim Stuckes has to say:
"We are aware that the drop-in centre is a place where teenagers gather, and we will certainly respond to this report of anti-social behaviour by tasking officers on patrol to speak to young people there in the evenings."
Do let us know , ridisc, if you have any more issues.
Well I obviously don't condone the swearing drinking and smoking of under age teenagers on the whole, I do feel a little sorry for them. Lets be totally honest for a second, Keynsham doesn't have the facilities to entertain them and the populous at large are against them. Its all very well and good ranting and blaming police but really the root cause is surely the town needs to modernise. Well I am aware the average age of a Keynshamite is rapidly rising,(only slightly slower than the number of charity shops appearing per person) They are just as much members of the town. Maybe approaching the drop out centre instead of going straight to the police would have been a better approach?. As said i don't like the anti social behaviour of SOME teenagers but I also don't like being forced i to the road by SOME pensioners on mobility scooters. Its all in the balance.
