Just thought I would vent some anger on here. Sadly once again due to some stupid, pathetic yobs the Whit Friday event is going to be no more I think. Hearing lots of stories, again not fact but from trust worthy people, that there was a shooting, fighting, gangs. Which, by the way seems to be getting worse and worse every year. We only had one issue in Uppermill. The amount of yobs, that all look about 15 might I add, are ****ed up, shouting and looking for fights where ever you go. Sadly I dont think the police can manage this event any longer and because of these idiots that come in and have no interest in the musical event this event will be in danger. I'm not saying for one minute that I have the answers but what can we do? Im sure everyone on here and all other bandsman/women want nothing more than for this event to carry on, but what can be done to make this a better evening? I conduct Dobcross Youth Band and sometimes I felt worried for the kids safety whilst walking through Uppermill. The shouting, fighting swearing and general aggressive behaviour to the bands taking part was disgusting. What does everyone else think? Am I just getting on my high horse or do others feel the same way? Having said that the kids on the whole had a good day despite some worrying moments. Point is, there shouldn't be ANY worrying moments!
