Hucknall people are seeing red about what they say is an anti-social behaviour problem on the town’s Green Close.

The issue was raised at the annual meeting of Butlers Hill and Goodall Crescent Tenants and Residents Association this week.

A woman at the meeting said teenagers were kicking a ball around the street at night, sometimes until 10pm and 11pm.

She said some of the youngsters had been ‘running wild’ and ‘dashing onto gardens’.

The woman pointed out that police had looked into the complaint and the matter had also been raised with Ashfield District Council.

Another resident commented that there was no need for youngsters to play on the close because Butlers Hill recreation ground was only a few yards away.

It was agreed at the meeting to make upgrading of the ‘rec’ a priority.

The problem of dog fouling was also raised.

Association members are to carry out a survey to make a note of problems which also include parking on grass verges.

Officers elected for the coming year were Rosie Peacock as chairman, Martine Halford as vice-chairman, Charlotte Richardson as secretary and Beryl Tomlinson as treasurer.
