A ‘snobby’ resident has been branded the real-life Hyacinth Bucket after sending an anonymous note to new neighbours demanding they store their bins at the back of their house. 

The homeowner, who received the note just four weeks after moving to the Tranby Park estate in Hessle, East Yorkshire, caused hilarity and uproar in equal measures after she shared it to a local Facebook page.

The letter, which was posted second class mail, asked the new owners to help keep house prices higher for the neighbourhood by stashing their bins out of sight.

It was shared by the new owner, who said: ‘Less than four weeks in my house and my neighbour has this delivered to me by second class mail.’

The letter proceeds to instruct them about the need for keeping Tranby Park ‘clean and tidy’, citing Gipsyville – a deprived suburb of Hull – which they spell ‘gypsy ville,’ as an area where bins are stored at the front of houses, apparently creating a ‘domino effect’ for others following suit.

The letter, which noticeably fails to welcome to the resident, reads: ‘We hope you will see this request as others did in the past simply because it is in the interest of everyone. 

‘We are sure you have chosen to live in this area because you liked what you saw in the house and the area. The Tranby Park area has been kept clean and tidy for over 20 years by the many residents and the council maintaining the park for our kids.

‘We are not sure if you have noticed but there are no rubbish bins outside the houses. This is for several reasons, to stop rats and foxes feeding and to keep the area tidy.

The Tranby Park estate (pictured) is a mix of two, three and four bed houses and according to property website Zoopla, the average house price is £274,000

‘Rubbish bins outside homes make any area look cheap and one has to look at the likes of gypsy ville to see the domino effect when one resident decides to go against the common sense of the majority.’

It goes on to say: ‘The residents and the council cannot and should not tell you where to put your rubbish bins but pride in the appearance of one’s home and respect to neighbours should always win.

‘We hope that you will understand because it is for the benefits of all and good to keep our house values too. Thank you.’

The letter attracted many hilarious comments, with people unanimously opposing the ‘snooty’ letter and making parallels to the famously snobbish Hyacinth Bucket of BBC 1’s ‘Keeping up Appearances’ who insisted on pronouncing her surname ‘Bouquet’ and repeatedly sneered at her neighbours.

One commented: ‘Crikey. Hyacinth Bucket on the prowl,’ while a second commented: ‘Mrs Hyacinth Bucket has moved to Hessle – who would have thought it!’

Another said: ‘Whoever wrote that knows exactly how entitled and snobby it is or they would’ve signed their name to it.

‘I’d rather live with the folks of Gipsyville than that snobby trash. I would purposely leave it out from now. Such arrogance!’

Another made a novel suggesting, saying: ‘I’d replace your bins with a permanent 12ft skip. Then I’d write back that I didn’t like their car and have they considered changing it for the good of the residents? Absolute drainers.’

One wrote: ‘I’d be out now looking for an old banger to dump on blocks on the drive for a few weeks right now.’

Another who objected to the letter said: ‘There’s no need for it is there really? Get a trampoline and put it out front, then maybe a caravan, that’ll do it.’ 

The Tranby Park estate is a mix of two, three and four bed houses and according to property website Zoopla, the average house price is £274,000.
