    My house is on a row with neighbours on the left but nothing other than a little car park on the right. Kids often kick their football against my wall (and other peoples walls) . I can hear the thud ''thud'' in my living room from the sound of the ball hammering the wall. I/we have approached these youngsters more times than need be but they don't seem to get the message. what can be done about it?

    ...Or alternatively, to avoid potential prosecution opportunities, talk to their parents.

    Lol! seriously I have actually thought of that, though I don't think it would be quite possible.

    There's a car park at the back of my house, and we get chavs riding their little motorscooter things in there all the time.

    I usually close the window.

    Edit: Oh right, they're actually playing up against your wall. My bad. Put some trellis and some climbers going up it over the wall.
    Edit 2: And tell them that they're going to have to pay the damages if anything gets broken.

    Failing that, just tell the ***** to **** off.

    I can't as they have neighbours on both sides of their house, so there is no wall to kick against.

    Had this issue before. Try talking to their them, then their parents as suggested. If that doesnt work, just take their ball. Worst comes to worst threaten to call the police..and then do so if all else fails.

    Go out there and steal their ball. Or try to engage them in pleasant conversation, it'll confuse the hell out of them and they'll never come back.

    I cant as I'd need planning permission for that. I am well liked and respected in my neighbourhood. I would like to sort out this problem without a fallout within the community.

    ...you need planning permission for TRELLIS?!? You are ****ting me, right?
    Shove a few thunderbolts through the wall and have some hanging flowers pots on there then. You wouldn't need permission for that (I doubt you'd need permission for a bit of trellis, it wouldn't even touch the floor).

    get a bunch of your friends and tell them all to put on hoodies and tell them to cover their eyes when wearing the hoodies. then you and your hoodie friends could walk all intimidatingly towards the little buggers while they play football and then use intimidating voices with incomprehensible slang and tell them that if they come back again then (this is the part where you say a threat.)
    they probably won't come back if they think a bunch of intimidating hoodies are gonna threathen them.
    done and done.
