Advantages: Near Leisure Centre
Disadvantages: Drug Addicts, Nothing To Do
I have been in Leighton Buzzard for many years now and I believe the town is very boring! Every weekend I have to leave the town to somewhere like Milton Keynes as they have a massive Shopping Centre for all ages! There’s also is a Cinema, which has ten screens! I believe that Leighton buzzard is a thousand times worse! Leighton Buzzard has one Cinema screen which is in a Library and also shows films about a month later than it was set to come out!
The Attractions: In Leighton Buzzard there is nothing to do! Down the town there is a couple of shops, which are mostly charity shops, and a market that doesn’t have anything to offer it just really gets in the way and it’s quite annoying! There is a Woolworths, which is probably the most exciting shop there! Every year there is a ‘May Day,’ which is always rubbish! This year I didn’t spend one penny on it. I spent about 1 pound on chips and that was it! There were three dodgy rides, which were about as exciting as my big toe, it was that boring! Up and down the Fair there was stalls, which you could clearly see you couldn’t win on any of them. Up the town, which I have already said is a library. It is good to do work in there but the Cinema is absolute rubbish. I’ve been to there twice and both times I found that I was cramped up in a small room and the screens really did look tacky!
There are many pubs though; it’s probably what Leighton are known for! There are about eight or nine! Most of them do music and all your favourite dinks! The most popular pub in Leighton is probably the Waterborne! It does all your favourite music, drinks and it has a café next to it! This café does lots of food so you wont get as drunk when you drink that extra pint! There is also a music player that you can put your music in to it just in case you think there is boring music in there, so they are keeping the public happy! But there would be more pubs than this
as recently there has been two pubs that have closed down because the landlord of both got himself bankrupt! But we’ve still got our eight or nine left!
There are also no parks around Leighton. There is actually one, but it is over ruled by drug addicts and alcoholics so it’s kind of hard to go over there if you’re a kid. The football goal and the basketball ring have been trashed and I don’t even think they have had that for half a year! For the unpopular people it must be worse as you wouldn’t even be invited over to the park! I used to be, but I said no as there is too much smoke around there (I’m an asthmatic!) They all understand that but I still think the council or even the police should get involved as it’s ruining children’s fun! Especially when you see people drinking at about 5pm while little children are trying to play football! There is one on the outskirts of Leighton Buzzard, which is also over ruled by drug addicts! There are sometimes syringes around the place, used ones. This is disgusting, as these people don’t think about the safety of our next generation of children!
So basically what I am saying is that Leighton Buzzard in general is much of a hell hole (except if you’re a hardcore pub drinker!) Charity shops over rule the town and drug addicts over rule the parks. We have a market that just gets in the way, which is near the Library, which is good for work, but the Cinema above it is Rubbish. That about sums up Leighton Buzzard! I haven’t mentioned the Leisure Centre, which is
One of the best you will ever see. But that is in the next town Linslade! They have to shop in Leighton so I bet they feel the same way! Also I know that people from another town that is next to us, Heath and Reach, think worse of the town than I do which is degrading the town quite a bit! I’m not saying that the houses are in the dumps because it is the opposite! It’
;s just there is nothing to do in it at all!
