Travellers set up camp at Trinity School

TRAVELLERS have moved onto Trinity School’s playing field at Love Lane. 

Around five caravans could be seen parked up on the field earlier today (Monday), accompanied with cars, horses and dogs. 

It is the latest set of traveller encampments to be seen in the district, following a summer where camps have also been moved on from Stroud Green and Thatcham. 

In Theale, villagers resorted to digging a trench in June to stop travellers from returning to the area before the council moved them on.

    Those who 'think' that its a minority of travellers who cause issues, remember that they carry bolt croppers and break and enter. They are also a majority who crap and infect areas , such as the Greenham memorial areas, which as tax payers, we fund to disinfect and clean. They are also responsible for eating at places and walking out without paying ( Nandos where a friends son used to work) . Also seem to have an increase in crime when they are around ( neighbours house broken into and luckily got caught and jailed) . See also news on Aldermaston this week for further traveller issues , which are from permanent sites, so saying that the council dont supply enough places for them to go, proves they are still as criminal in their activities. We dont want them here, so the less areas we can stop them getting in, the better.
