Since the drug and alcohol rehabilitation service closed and police numbers have been reduced our town is unrecognisable. I don’t feel safe walking through town with my son at 10:30am on a weekday any more due to regularly seeing people under the influence of alcohol or drugs, used needles and antisocial behaviour. it’s really sad.
I’d like to see the money used to bring back the much needed drug and alcohol services and increase policing. Homelessness is also an issue and some people who pretend to be homeless to fraudulently obtain goods and money from visitors to the town.
Much as I’d love a lot more for our town please let’s get the basics right first because it’s been run into the ground. I’d like to see funding for drug and alcohol rehabilitation , increased services for the homeless & real police, not just PCSOs who check the cameras retrospectively. We need to clean this town up
