I WANT to bring to the attention of local residents the increasing number of anti-social events that take place as a result of drunken teenagers coming home from the pub or house parties/social gatherings on the Stukeley Meadows estate, and the impact this is having on residents.

Firstly, these events are not only occurring at the weekend, but also on weekday evenings. I know it's the summer and residents want to take advantage of the warm weather by having parties outside, and although I have no problem with people holding parties in their own homes, what I, and many others, do object to is being kept awake by loud music, singing, shouting and criminal damage caused to property as a result of drunken louts thinking it's fun to do it.

They have a total disregard for residents' entitlement to peace and quiet and no respect for other people's property.

There is also the issue of beer cans, glass bottles, cigarette ends and chewing gum being discarded in other people's gardens and on the road and pathways, and more worryingly in the children's parks.

I have spoken to various residents who have been disturbed by these inconsiderate party goers and most of them have been on the verge of calling the police, but worry about potential consequences as a result of them doing so.

I would like residents to have the courage and confidence to call the police. If they do they could prevent other people suffering the same damage to their property as I have, and get a good night's sleep.

I would also like those attending these parties or going to the pub to have more consideration and respect for their neighbours.

Perhaps the police could be encouraged to patrol the estate in the early hours to keep an eye out for these drunken people and prevent anything happening.
