Paddy Power shoot ad outside notorious Abbey Wood bookies

Paddy Power have today swept into Abbey Wood o film an advert outside a betting shop notorious for long running anti-social behaviour around the premises.

To compound the issue, Abbey Wood’s councillors claim to not have heard a thing about it. Instead, Bexley Council have been restricting parking on Greenwich’s patch. Who receives income charged to the company will be revealing – and where it is spent.

Cross-boundary confusion is nothing new here and the town suffers for it – but this is quite a feat.

Just yesterday social media had complaints of men peeing in the area around the bookies and nearby alley which is a regular complaint. Drinkers tend to congregate in the area. Personally I’m live and let live as long as others aren’t bothered, but they do make a mess and there have been regular complaints that women feel uncomfortable walking past groups of men lingering outside making comments as they pass.

This has seemingly gone on for years with little ever changing.

They’ve installed a nice new bench outside for the ad. Presumably the usual seats  drinkers congregate around aren’t nice enough.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.
