Residents of Bell End call for change to their 'embarrassing' street name !

Here’s a Monday chuckle for everyone

Residents of Bell End call for change to their ’embarrassing’ street name…..reet-name/

The residents even claim the street name is driving down house prices, saying that semi-detached houses in Bell End are valued at around £60,000 less than the £186,000 odd fetched by similar properties on nearby Uplands Avenue !!!
