    I moved in to Little Hulton 15 years ago. I still live in Little Hulton and that has been my choice. I realise this area is far from perfect but in reality it’s probably no worse than most other suburban areas with a high population density. This area continues to suffer from a reputation it earned in the 1970s and1980s. I can’t comment on the area as it was then as I didn’t live here. However I have moved around this country a lot in my life time (South East, Midlands and the North) so when I say this area isn’t the derelict hell hole that other comments seem to suggest I base that comment on personal experience. I’ve read the other comments; my reply to Debra is simple morons exist everywhere and you are likely to come across more of them through your life no matter where you live. I’m sorry your complaints to the local of authority did not produce the desired results but that is likely to be more of a reflection on the local authority than Little Hulton. I found the comments by Gecko rather strange but they are typical of the views held, particularly by the older generation who remember the reputation of the area in the 1970s and 1980s. I should point out that the figures for unemployment may be high relative to the national average but it’s still only in the region of 5%, which does not really support the “everyone on benefits” comment. I am a doctor, I have two masters degrees and a PhD from the university of Manchester. I live in Little Hulton because I choose to. It would be really nice if people would give us a chance rather than judging us using old and inaccurate views to reinforce their prejudices.

    I lived in little hulton from 2003 to 2009. I have to add that the area does have a lot of nice people with good character living there. However, whilst I was there I had to put up with a neighbor from hell. He came into my house with a hammer, pulled me in the street and raised his voice at me, frequently tried to break into my home, stole property from my garden and even stole my mail i.e a giro as my partner had been made redundant.
    I did report all of these incidents to the police but it seemed to fall on deaf ears, even when I had to report that my 10 year old son had been shot in the head with an air rifle by the same person.
    The only thing that saved my sanity was my change in good luck when I was accepted by Newcastle University in 2009. I was able to stop any further harm from being done to my family and managed to get my children into schools that were very well run.
    I wish I could say the same for Little Hulton but I have to wonder if at the time the local authority were protecting the family that lived next door to me on Eastwood Avenue, as I lived in private accommodation and they lived in a council house. After hearing some of the comments made by councilors in defense of the little Hulton area, I can’t help but wonder what their hidden agenda is and what makes them think that they can protect these people that cause harm to others. The only reasoning that I can think of is that it benefits the local council to keep these people in business.

    Disgrace, drugs, no morals, no respect, all related, they don’t work, all on benefits, say that they took are jobs, asked them who are they and they have no clue. Not smart enough to know that voting might help them in the long run. Sex drugs and drink is the only things of value.
    Dirty kids not looked after, no prospects because most people can’t provide the children with anything, without holding their hand out to the government.
    Not realising or caring that this means the few working people are paying for them and their kids indirectly.
    Not to mention because they are from 3 generations of benefit claimants, they can’t give their own children the tools they need to get on in modern day society.
    Complete right off area.
    If it was a communist country or national party country areas of people like this would simply vanish over night with no question or care to where the drain on society went.
