We arrive back from the High St and I hear someone calling from the old people's bungalows over (and below) our garden wall. I can see no-one but I go over and finally find a head. Attached to a body.
She is alerting me to the fact that the three scruffy youths, whom we saw heading down the ginnel between our house and our next door neighbour's, had actually been walking round the outside of our house and looking inside.
She thinks they may have been looking for the drug dealer in the end old people's bungalow. She alerted the police to the dealer a while back but they just told her to 'keep a dossier'. She told them that was their job.
A faint bell sounded. About a year ago another neighbour, who lives opposite the fronts of the bungalows, told of the pensioner drug dealer and how police had been notified and did nothing.
A week ago, yet another neighbour found a used syringe in our ginnel. He handed it to neighbour no.4 who is the Neighborhood Watch Co-ordinator. She said she would notify the police.
We will soon be going away for a month. Our immediate neighbours all work during the day.
What would you do?
