Refined but still the same says...

This type of crime is becoming more and more common in Halstead and I am very glad that I decided to move my family out of this area. Possibly a very controversial comment here, but there seems to be some horrible people from a certain side of town who really have ruined Halstead (just take a look at the crime statistics, you will be shocked how may crimes are focused around one area). Unfortunately the future for Halstead is bleak; it has a very, very poor secondary school (the league tables tells the story), it is the wrong side of Braintree for commuters to London and Cambridge and offers absolutely no professional jobs in the town (being a volunteer at a charity shop is not going to build bright budding futures). There is nothing on offer in Halstead for children who aspire to make something of their lives, they are simply not encouraged in the right way. Wake up and smell the coffee, the place has gone down hill for the last fifteen years due to the lack of investment in anything from the next to useless council.Sorry to rant... now back to work!
