You may remember back in September I wrote an article in the Gazette about how disappointed I was to hear so much foul language spoken on a Friday morning in Bridgend town centre. In only a short walk, I passed two members of the public on separate occasions swearing loudly at the top of their voices, offending other shoppers around that day.
I was pleased with the positive response I received for this article in the local paper with members of the public supporting my view that such language is offensive and should not be tolerated.
Since then, I have spoken to both, the Chief Constable of South Wales Police, Peter Vaughan as well as the Police and Crime Commissioner for South Wales, Alun Michael, regarding the issue and I have been reassured that the matter is receiving attention and will be dealt with.
It is clear that the police are concerned with tackling such issues, ensuring town centres such as Bridgend are pleasant places to be enjoyed by all.
