    Was absolutely packed with everyday folk doing their everyday thing, it was viberant, enjoyable & a pleasure. Anyone who thinks it's FULL of druggies, idiots & a sh1thole can go & fck off................rant over.

    Yeah, I think you're eyes must be painted on... Plenty of decent folk in town yes, but there are plenty of scratters too.

    I'll defend our town until the day i die but facts are facts mate, and it's a fact every time i'm in the town centre i see at least one person laid out off their heads on drugs.

    Pop up to Pitt St around 12.30 and you'll see feeding time at the zoo.

    I love my home town as much as anyone, but you must have the blinkers on not to notice the issues the town centre has with the more, shall we say "unsavoury" types that frequent it.

    It's not a new thing either. I left school in 98 and even in those days we couldn't walk through it on out way home without someone smacked off their titts asking us to "lend" them 50p for a taxi home.

    I love my hometown and the considerable steps they are taking to drive it forward. Deal with these twats and we’re golden. My particular low point was whilst stood with my 7 year old waiting to enter the civic theatre, witnessing dealing in Mandela gardens. No place for these lovely people in the town centre. Can’t we put them in a warehouse in Sheffield?

    Same as every town/city in the world even in my day but they weren’t drugged they were pissed .
    People pulling the town down as if we are unique to these problems that’s what’s galling,
    Pull the town and it’s inhabitants down at every opportunity for the slightest thing .
    Yeah we get it we’ve got a problem but the problems with the Scum that’s bringing this stuff in and infecting our most vulnerable people.

    I was there yesterday morning (Thursday) 10.30 - 12 ish, two groups in Peel Square, loud-mouthed, drinking out of open containers, stoned out their minds. Couldn't miss them, sadly.

    Oh, I totally agree. Every town centre up and down the country is in the same boat. The comment was to the OP who said that, in his opinion, things were all rosey in the Tarn...

    He was saying what he sees and I have to agree with him ,
    People don’t need much of an opportunity to pull the town down there on here every other thread.
    The Town is far and above a hell of a lot of places but the glass half empty brigade see it different .
    I’ve been in this morning and seen groups of people talking with each other carrying shopping.
    Half the towns in the country and people have no time for anyone it’s heads down and away.
    We are no different to any other place as far as the drug problem goes but to some on here we are the worst place in the world everything is a dump according to them .
    The problem lies with the people bringing these drugs in and until they are dealt with and not just hiding the addicts we always will have a problem .
