“Degrading OUR Area, time to kick these rebels out” Written by Jubir Ahmed Boys from the local area are being accused of “ASBO” behaviour and fears that the park will never be the same, thanks to the troubled youths have angered and annoyed the local citizens and police. The park has been left with a lot of litter consisting of alcohol bottles, fag buns and tobacco sheets. The park has been compared to a sewage dump according to the local police. Aston Park has a good history and is one of the main attractions in Aston - which also includes Aston Hall where Sir Thomas Holte originally lived. In the 1920s, the Birmingham Corporation was having financial troubles and had to choose between saving Aston Hall and the nearby Perry Hall. Aston Hall was saved and in 1927, The Birmingham Civic Society designed formal gardens which were implemented by the city with a workforce recruited from the unemployed and paid for by government grants This was so people could make something memorable for the future years. And with all the shocking behaviour in the park now many elder and younger citizens are scared to go into their own park. Football coach Ian Smith said “ I coach football here in Aston Park and I often see groups of boys hooded up walking around up to no good, they are very rowdy and loud and usually make a mess, although I don’t live in Aston, I don’t think they are giving a good representation of the area.
The Football Pitch caretaker Abdul Abbas quoted “I have lived in this area all my life and I have never seen young boys act so appalling in my life, locally there are many clubs and groups they can join but they choose not to, and their degrading our area, it’s time to kick these rebels out”. Although most of the adults in Aston are against the young boys, student Abdul Rajak said “ Even though there are a lot of teens messing around and causing trouble, it is a minority and not a majority, I don’t think its fair for adults and police to target our whole age group - when some of us dont do nothing wrong”. Husband and father of three, Ali Kazim included “The park is for kids to have fun and enjoy there time, babies to the elderly to everyone enjoys coming to the park for some fresh air and there is a lot of litter around, noise smoking and drinking but some groups of boys are just in the park to chill out from school and college, so there not all to blame because we were all kids at one part of our life”. We can hear everybody’s points and views but the “ASBO” behaviour has to stop. With Our park turning into a mess hopefully with the support of the community and police, the young scoundrels will be prosecuted, so we can all enjoy OUR pride and OUR park.
