    Just to share my experience of long eaton. Lived there 15 years, through my teen years that’s why I can definitely say that long eaton is badder than people know (obv, as I’m the first person posting!) the peers at the school I went to thrived on: if you can’t beat them – join them attitude. I had plenty of yobbish fun as a youth with the collingwood park crew who also took over monkey park sawley park & west park – we where constantly moved on by police but where never caught doing anything wrong… Plant pot Robbin, hedge hoppin, red letter playin :-/ it wasn’t actually until school was over that underage clubbing drug dealing binge drinking became many ppls way of life. Due to lack of opportunity in this town. The town lets the youngsters down with no real support creativity or ambition, only “chalkies” dancing and social reliance leading to clubbing at an older age. The town is full of old people who are rude and then wonder why the young ones turn out bad. No jobs apart from dead head factory, pub or slave retail. I moved out this town ASAP. The only good thing about this town is its easy to get into, train or bus, but traffic is a bitch like heanor!
