Accusations of students from Berwickshire High School in Duns littering Market Square with their lunch time foraging expeditions to the fast food fleshpots-a letter in last week's Bewickshire (as duly blogged below) has elicited two pained responses in this week's letter column-see here
-one from some of the students and the other from the Depute (ugh) Rector
Huttonian has no strong views on this-Duns seems remarkably free of this scourge but I did happen to be behind a group of 15 year old or so girls last week who were loudly expressing their irritation at the original letter.The most vocal of all complaining bitterly about crumblies who had nothing better to so than slag off well behaved youngsters illustrated her point to perfection by a flicking an empty crisp packet in the general direction of a bin-some body's let out for collection-missing it by about 6 feet and cackling 'Let the old nuisance come and tidy that up then'
So much for the Social Education programme?
But then we are talking about a tiny minority.
As we always do.
No such problem when we had the school in Hutton.
Down town foraging at lunch time completely unknown.
