Your views ofSS7

BO, southend-on-sea

Friday, April 5, 2019

Neighbours tend to be very insular. There is a degree of politeness but not to the extent of a welcoming community. Lots of walking and dog walkers, an influx of young families with children is helping to renew the age profile. More could be done to some houses to reflect pride in the house frontages. Eg getting rid of old and abandoned cars. All in all though it's a pleasant enough neighbourhood with no one bothering anyone.
