I live in a small culdesac, its really nice and the neighbours know each other without being in each others pocket and knowing everyones business etc. But, we do have a BIG problem.
Kids with rugby balls and footballs, they are forever bouncing off our windows, ruining plants etc, they have now started trying to kick the rugby ball high enough to knock the telephone wires down. There are quite a few of us now who are completely fed up of this, the children come into our gardens, standing on our plants and are quite abusive, the thing that makes it so annoying is that some of the lads don't live on the culdesac, but the one who does and is the main ring leader, gets away with murder, his parents are well aware of what is going on, they must be, considering how many people have gone and had a word with them.
What i would like to know is how do we go about getting a *'NO BALL GAMES ALLOWED'* sign put on the telegraph poles. There are quite a few residents who would be happy to have this enforced.
A hunkermunker is a gorgeous little boy who's currently being bathed by his daddy And it's also what a couple of other MNetters have called their babies as a term of endearment quite without meaning to in the past few months I'm sneaky like that!
I am not the only resident on the street to have double glazing cracked by them, the children in question are about 12 and ALL play rugby and football for various teams. We don't mind toddlers and youngsters who can't kick the ball very hard playing but when they are getting to this age and damage is being done we are not amused.
