A charity worker has been told to stop parking his van on one of the wealthiest streets in Edinburgh because it apparently ‘lowers the tone of the area’.

Bradley Welsh shared an image of the passive aggressive note on social media, after he found it left on his van advertising his Helping Hands children’s boxing classes.

“To the driver, please can you stop parking this van outside my new flat as it is lowering the tone of the area PLEASE,” the note read.

“Also advertising trailer. Keep it for IND Estate, not the Newtown. Thank you. Brian & Bill x.”

Bradley, who runs the Holyrood Boxing Gym, said online ‘it’s always nice to be reminded that you are doing good’.

“I’ve offered to #Help #BRIANandBILL buy a Castle with private grounds to keep the peasants out of sight. Absolute clowns,” he wrote on Twitter.


Bradley’s van and trailer is regularly parked near important institutions such as The Committee of Scottish Bankers and The Chartered Banker Institute to promote the voluntary organisation Edinburgh Helping Hands, reports The Sun.

The organisation, set up in 2014 by ex-footie casual Bradley Welsh and Jim Slaven, has operated the capital’s biggest food bank.

Most people agreed that Brian and Bill seemed a bit full of themselves.
