Do you think it is about time the tramp living in the old bus stop was moved on? Is the bus stop listed as it has been there years since it was used for a stop. Don't want to think about what lurks in the bushes of the green area Crane Walk behind the stop.

Your compassion does you proud. I hope you never find yourself on the wrong side of fate and, in the unfortunate circumstance that you do, i hope that people show you more kindness than you have shown in your post.
Moved on where? He doesn't apear to be doing much bar sleeping, admitly I pass him 1/4 to 7 in the mourning.
I quite agree Gareth. There but for the grace of God...

Compassion don't make me laugh. You lot bang on about dogs mess on a thread on here. What if your kid stepped in his. That shelter must be listed (it has a number tagged on it).

The in use bus stop is only a few yards up the street from the shelter and you could see approaching services. If it was raining you could use it but not when you have Hamptons very own Bear Grylls in there.

Move on where Roger? How about Gareth's shed if he is so compassionate.

Firstly, have you any evidence to suggest that this man is using the bushes for the use you suggest? I know for a fact that he's a regular down at the pool where he uses the showers, at the laundrette and in the local cafes and pubs who allow him to make use of their facilities.

He does nobody any harm so why should he be moved on?  I have to say from the conversations I have with locals and from the evidence of my own eyes, I've never seen this man treated with anything other than kindness.

Appalling sentiments hammer. Have a heart, Buy an umbrella and let him shelter from the rain.

Not when they are shut he don't Gareth.

My guess is he is local which life has happened to, yesterday lunch time he was chatting to some one in the old Bus Stop, which to the best of my knowledge isn't listed https://historicengland.org.uk and to be honest, I'm not sure why it matters any how?

 

Posts about this man have come up several times on the Streetlife site. Local agencies are aware of him but I kind of got the impression from one of them (just my opinion) that solutions aren't always as simple as they appear.

They aren't as simple as they appear.  He is regularly spoken to by SPEAR (local homeless charity).

The only thing that I have heard about him is that he is polite.  He was when we exchanged words in the Launderette.

We were just speaking about him last night at dinner with local friends.  He apparently has been offered housing before, but has turned it down as it was not in Hampton.  He stays in the shelter as he is apparently a local himself.  As Gareth said, he does avail himself of all local facilities, is extremely friendly - last week I saw a group of mothers and their children having a chat with him.  He (I do wish I knew his name) has been taken to heart by the local community and I have often seen people dropping off food, etc for him.  Can SPEAR help him find somewhere in Hampton? (but I am sure that they are already aware of his requirements).  

Or maybe Kensington or Chelsea?????

If he doesn't accept what he is offered.....TOUGH
